Here we are with the last issue of the Jewish Standard of March. And while Purim is in the past and Passover on the horizon, there are still Purim events you can participate in this weekend. (See calendar below). We hope you will read the article about the Jewish response to the New Zealand massacre, which features a quote and observations from Evan Karzhevsky. There's more to read about as well that's about Rockland. For your ease, we're highlighting the Rockland stories. Below that, you'll find the calendar of events, so you don't miss that one event to which you really want to go. Enjoy!!
