Spend Purim with Yavneh
This year Purim begins at sunset on Wednesday, March 16th
The story of the joyous holiday of Purim might appear somber at first glance: It tells of the near-destruction of the Jewish people as decreed by Haman, an advisor to the Persian King Ahashuerus. However, Ahashuerus' newly crowned queen, Esther--who replaced Vashti when she was thrown out of the kingdom--is secretly a Jew. Due to her courage and her eventual role in saving the Jews, the story of Purim is recounted in "Megillat Esther," the "Scroll of Esther."
Yavneh will host a virtual online Purim gathering at 7:00 pm on March 16th. The gathering, led by Cantor Karen, will include singing, a Purim Spiel (dramatic recounting of the Purim story), and an opportunity to study. We will be joined by Reverend Sasha Ostrom, the Assistant Minister at UU Fellowship of Raleigh.
