Family Purim Party – February 25, 5:00PM – Join via Zoom

On Thursday, February 25, join us for a Pre-Megillah Purim Party! We will kick off the evening with a costume parade (please come in costume!), followed by a few minutes to hang out with our KI friends in breakout rooms. We will end with a Purim Kahoot, where you can test your Purim knowledge. Event has been planned and will be run by teens, and is targeted for children 12 and under.

Kid Kits from KI

Our Purim Mishloach Manot packages this year will include  a special “Kid Kit,” which will feature a grogger for your child(ren) as well as a DIY, Make-Your-Own Mask Project. Everyone with a child under 12 will receive this gift to help you celebrate Purim at home!

Base BSTN: 20s + 30s
Base BSTN’s *Magical* Purim Party – February 25 at 8:15PM | Register

We’re taught that the Hebrew month of Adar flips everything on its head.  All the more-so on Purim, with our costumes and revelry, things are not always as they seem.  In that regard, join us for an evening of MAGIC & MENTALISM with Master Magician (and friend of Base BSTN!) Danny Dubin!  Danny will memorize us with a fun and interactive show & then there will be lots of time for schmoozing. Register now to reserve your spot!

Support Yad Chessed
The special mitzvah of matanot l’evyonim requires Jewish people of all ages to give over and above customary tzedakah to at least two people in need on Purim. This tradition of helping those in need is central to the spirit of Purim and reminds us that we are obligated and honored to extend a helping hand in times of joy and celebration. Make a gift here.
