Roosevelt Islander Online: Celebrate Queen Esther’s Gambit With Fun, Parody, Prayer, Song And Costume Party At Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation’s Virtual Zoom Purim Celebration Thursday February 25

The Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation Celebrates Purim!! 

The RIJC is the oldest, longest-serving active egalitarian congregation on RI,
engaging the community for more than 40 years. We are multi-generational,
welcoming, & responsive to our unique Island population. The Coronavirus
Pandemic has not slowed us down, and since last March 20th, we have continued
to celebrate Shabbats, the High Holidays, festivals & more holidays, child
& family activities, many life-cycle events and more, virtually, via
Zoom. 

That spirit of service continues this Thursday, February 25 at 6:00 pm, with
our annual, grand celebration of Purim, led by our Rabbi, Joel Shaiman. Via
Zoom, we will celebrate the holiday of Queen Esther with fun & parody,
prayer and song, a costume parade, making Hamentashen, and a great new Purim
play written, produced, directed, & starring our members & friends. 

Last Purim, March 9th, 2020, was the last time 40 of us were together, in person, in our Sanctuary. 

We look forward to the time we will all be together in person again. In the meantime, come celebrate this great holiday with the RIJC, your friends & family. 

All the details are at our website, RIJC.org — please visit us.

We hope you will join us for the whole evening of celebration.
