ESTHER: The Eras Tour

Megillah Reading: 7:45pm in the Sanctuary

Shake it off in Shushan! Come hear Esther’s Story during a lively megilah reading, including a children’s costume parade, and a Taylor Swift concert aka a Purim Shpiel. All ages welcome!

Join us in-person or via livestream at AnscheChesed.org/MegillahReading


Minyan M’at Megillah Reading: 8pm in Hirsch Hall

Join with the Minyan M’at community to celebrate Purim and hear a full reading of megillat Esther.

In addition to megillah reading & sumptuous refreshments, the event will feature a musical “send-up” of the megillah featuring a dozen beloved Broadway tunes, with a heavy dose of Sondheim, all written and performed by “our very own” Ron Meyers with support from a talented cast of minyanites. Get ready to “knock back” a Shushan Shpritzer and have a laugh!


West Side Minyan, Rimonim and TeleTefila Megillah Reading: 8:30pm in 5 North or Virtually via Zoom

The WSM, Rimonim and TeleTefila will hold hybrid Purim services, beginning with maariv and followed by megillah reading. In-person attendance will be on the 5th floor of AC, or virtually via Zoom. Please bring eats and drinks! Please wear a medical mask (except while leading davening or chanting megillah) and leave your coat in the coatroom on the first floor. Please wear a costume, mask or funny hat — even if you are on line. We will be able to see you on Zoom!

Every Purim, we assemble a bag of goodies for every member household. Contributing toward Mishloach Manot bags is a great way to celebrate Purim and brighten a friend’s day, while also raising vital funds for the shul. Here’s how it works: send Mishloach Manot to specific friends for $9/bag, or to the entire membership for $450.

The DEADLINE is Monday, March 18. To participate, log into your Shul account and go to AnscheChesed.org/MishloachManot.

You can pick up your bags on Erev Purim (Saturday night, March 23) and during the day on Purim (Sunday, March 24).
