Purim - Ma'ariv and Megillah Reading


March 9, 2009 - 7:15pm

Join Kehilat Hadar for a rollicking Megillah reading!  Please come in costume. 


This year, we will be meeting at the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew, 263 West 86th St. at West End Avenue at 7:15 p.m.


If possible, please bring your own siddur and megillah (we will have some extra copies), as well as all manner of noisemakers. All are invited to join us afterwards for shmoozing and hamentaschen.   


Can't make the 7:15 reading?  There will be a small, speedy second reading of Megillat Esther at 9:00 p.m. at the same location.

On Purim Day, we'll be joining Shaare Zedek for Shaharit and Megillah Reading.


Matanot La’Evyonim (Gifts to the Poor)


To help fulfill the commandment of giving gifts to the poor (matanot l'evyonim) on Purim, we will be collecting money for Mazon, A Jewish Response to Hunger (www.mazon.org) .  This will directly benefit Mazon's Pesach food drive for which contributions are greatly needed. We will also donate a portion of the money collected directly to the poor on Purim day in order to fulfill the halachic requirements of matanot l'evyonim
