Purim is a holiday marked by merriment, giving to others, costumes, and fun; all of which are elevated by the festive feel of being in community.

This year for the Neveh Shalom annual spring fundraiser, we are having some PURIM FUN on Monday, March 6. Let’s celebrate together the holiday of Purim at this moment in time as we mark Vashti’s boldness, Esther’s bravery, Mordechai’s defiance, Achashverosh’s leadership, and Haman’s failure.

We look forward to seeing you!



Young Family Purim Carnival (Ages 0-5 and Siblings)

All families with children ages 0-5 (and their siblings!) are invited for a super fun carnival to help spread joy and raise funds for the CNS educational programming. Enjoy carnival games, bounce house, face painting, photo booth, and Purim crafts.



Purim Dinner and Costume Contest


Everyone is invited to join the community for a delicious, family-friendly, kosher buffet provided by Century Catering. During the dinner, at 5:30pm, we will hold our costume contest for littles, biggers, teens, adults, and everyone in-between. Be sure to dress up and join in the fun!


Purim Shpiel, Mitzvah Moment, and the Megillah Reading
After the dinner, stay for a wonderful Purim Shpiel performed by our K-12th graders, with original music by Cantor Bitton.
After the Shpiel, we will honor our Purim Patrons and hold our annual Mitzvah Moment fundraising. If you can’t make it or want to give to our Mitzvah Moment now, you can make your gift by clicking here.
We will then move into the reading of the Megillah.
