Purim 2019 Recap

This year Congregation Olympic B’Nai Shalom had a very enjoyable Purim celebration. Friends, old and new, came together to read a shpiel, make some noise, have some wine, and of! Add in some costumes, and a few children, and we couldn’t have asked for a more fitting celebration!

All this was capped off by a lovely Havdallah service, setting the tone for a wonderful week.
