Jewish Community Celebrates Purim

Bernie Schlesinger, guest leader for the Jewish Community of Kauai, will lead the Purim celebration tomorrow at 10 a.m. at the St. Michael’s Church in Lihu‘e.

There will be Shabbat services and a reading of the story of Purim by Dale Rosenfeld, followed by a potluck. Hamantaschen will be provided.

Those attending are encouraged to bring canned goods or a monetary contribution for the local food bank.

Purim is the celebration of a time when the Jewish people in Persia were saved from extermination, and is oftentimes one of the most fun holidays of the Jewish calendar.
