5777 Purimshpil

Purim is a favorite Jewish holiday for feminists, young people, queer folks, and party animals of all stripes. Purim calls for noisemaking, rule-breaking, binary-blurring and an end to business as usual. All of those elements come together in a traditional folk play called a Purimshpil. Purim harnesses the power of carnival to turn justice into a celebration, heal the community, and propel us with glitter and trumpets towards the world as it should be. This year’s Purimsphil show will be held on Saturday, March 4th at the East Midwood Jewish Center (1625 Ocean Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11230). The show will take place in three acts throughout the evening, with live music in between. Join in the fabulousness and the fun! No one turned away for lack of cash or costume The Purim process is led by The Aftselakhis Spectacle Committee (TASC) in cahoots with Jews For Racial & Economic Justice, the Workmen’s Circle and in partnership with Great Small Works.
