Shake It Up for Purim!

Posted on February 26th, 2015 by Audrey Korotkin

Friends, we are still looking for some adult players who don’t mind getting silly for Purim. We will be rehearsing our “Shake It Up” Karaoke Megillah on Monday, March 2, at 6:00 at Temple. We’ll have informal pizza dinner as we work out our roles and warm up our voices and our attitudes. The Megillah reading is Friday night March 6th at 7:00 after 6:00 Congregational Dinner.


For the week of March 6th:

  • Alice Daley
  • Doctor John J. Gieg
  • Morris Goodman
  • Andrew W. Jubelirer
