Join us for an outstanding Purim evening!
6:30-6:45pm – Ma`ariv (Evening Service): Traditional service in Hebrew (Ashkenazi text). Prayers will be screen shared in Hebrew & English. Since we won’t be physically together to form a minyan, we’ll say this substitute for mourners’ kaddish.
6:45-7:00pm – Parashat Zakhor: Fulfill the annual mitzvah of hearing 3 verses read from a Torah scroll, in which we’re commanded to remember Amalek’s attack on the Israelites after we left Egypt (Devarim/Deuteronomy 25:17-19). Text will be screen shared in Hebrew & English.
7:00-8:00pm – Megillah Reading: Hear the full Book of Esther chanted by community members from scrolls. Text will be screen shared in Hebrew & English. WE RECOMMEND LOGGING ON A FEW MINUTES EARLY, AS READING WILL START AT 7:00 SHARP.
8:00-8:30pm – Persian Music Live Concert: Navaye Kimia features Padideh Ahrarnejad on tar (a stringed instrument) and vocals and Ali Massoudi on tonbak (percussion) and vocals. Navaye Kimia means “precious song.” Nava and Kimia are also the names of Padideh and Ali’s daughters.
8:30-9:30pm – Games & Socializing: Stick around for fun games & hanging out with new and old friends in breakout rooms. BYOB!
