Purim Festivities at Kehillah – Chag Purim Sameach!
Purim at Kehillah is a big event. The Jewish Life Committee pulls out all of the stops to celebrate this exciting, vibrant, and religiously significant holiday. This year, students and staff decked out in elaborate costumes for a “Purim Unmasked” festival. In the company of our friends from the Moldaw residences, Kehillah students and staff chanted the whole Megillah (Purim story)! In addition to the reading, there was a student-led discussion around the themes of empowerment and identity in the Megillah. We then split into party tracks for Zumba hosted by the OFJCC, Krav Maga hosted by Vanguard, mask creating in the art studio, and LED mask creating in the Laboratory for Engineering Arts. We all reconvened for a community Seudah (festive meal) and costume contest. It was a fun-filled event! Kol HaKavod to the Kehillah Jewish Life Committee!
