Purim at Hillel of RCC

Purim at the the Center for Jewish Life at Hillel at RCC was a big success. It began with an arts and crafts event, mask making, on Taanis Esther which took place at RCC.

On Purim night the venue was Shelli's Two Pizza Shop where a large and spirited crowd gathered to hear the Megillah which was lained beautifully by Yechiel Rapoport. The crowd included some who were fulfilling the mitzvah for the first time in their lives and many who would not have heard it otherwise.

The laining was followed by an entertaining Purim rap, purim puppet show, pinata smashing and a grand costume contest!
