We all know the axiom, “when the month of Adar arrives, our joy is increased.” It certainly feels that way, doesn’t it? COVID restrictions are being slackened, the weather is starting to warm up, and tulip bulbs are emerging from the ground. The month of Adar does feel pretty grand… as long as I don’t think about the Lakers.
If you’re feeling that same joyful spirit and want to keep the buzz going consider coming to, or streaming, our Megillah reading and Purim Spiel this Wednesday at 7:00 pm. We have a merry band of minstrels singing parodies of songs from a dozen different decades. Good times will be had by all in person and online!
So, bake a bunch of hamentashen, deliver some mishloach manot, offer matanot l'evyonim (gifts to the poor), and have a festive beverage at home because Purim is almost here! I hope to see you in person (in costume, of course) on Wednesday night. Wishing you all a continued month of increasing joy.
Chag Purim Sameach!
