Purim Carnival
Sunday, March 5th from 12:30 - 3:30 PM
At the Jewish Federation

Join us for our 2017 Purim Carnival. New booths include a prize shop, and inflatable obstacle race, mishloach manot making for Jewish Family Services and live music. Don't miss the costume contest with prizes for all ages, games and delicious goodies such as hamantashen and pizza.
 For our PJ Library families we'll be hosting a PJ Library Reading Room. Feel free to bring in your old PJ Library books and see if we have any that you haven't read yet. 

We need volunteers to help with various games and stations at our Purim Carnival. For more information how you can help, or to sign up, contact Efrat at or by calling 574-233-1164 x 107.
