Purim's Serious Sacred Silliness
Communal Study in memory of Solomon Fishman z'l, father of Eric Fishman
Wednesday, February 17, 7pm Via Zoom
From the outside, Purim seems to be all ribald farce and dark humor. When you look deeper, you may find that the carnival encloses weightier religious reflections on God's absence and human suffering. Please join neighboring synagogues of Ansche Chesed and Ramat Orah to reflect on Purim with rabbis Aviad Bodner and Jeremy Kalmanofsky and with each other for Zoom-based learning.
