We read the “megillah” with our puppets and groggers, making lots of רעש (ra’ash – noise) each time we heard Haman’s name.

Many Jews celebrate Purim by providing gifts of food to friends, which is just what we did by making mishloach manot for our Jewish Enrichment and Shorashim friends.  We made trail mix…

Purim was a ton of fun!  We look forward to celebrating more holidays in Shorashim!
