Thriller Megiller!

Last Friday night, we celebrated Purim together with our very special and spirited performance of "Thriller Megiller," a Purim Spiel by Norman Roth, edited and adapted by Rabbi David Segal and Cantor Rollin Simmons, inspired by the musical genius of Michael Jackson z"l.

The cast includes: Alan Bush, Sonny Durand, Faith Leibell, Esther Navias, Sarah Navias, Sandy Rothman, Michael Sailor, Rabbi David Segal, Cantor Rollin Simmons, Lynda Weiser, Robin Wittlin, and our JS students!  Tech support: Gigi Durand

Hope you enjoy the show...

"Purim Night!" is here...

Purim is coming: March 19-20, to be exact. We're having several celebrations in our community (see below), but first, we think you'll enjoy this video featuring our religious school students. They were really good sports, and I think you'll agree they captured the spirit of Purim!

Watch and enjoy -- and forward this to everyone you know, share it on Facebook, etc.!
 Let's reach 1,000 hits by Purim!
