PURIM: Undercover & Over the Top

Jewish Community Center, San Francisco, March 12, 2016
Sunday, March 12 | 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Free Admission | All Are Welcome
Live music. Stilt walkers. A puppet show! Join us for this off-street festival to celebrate Purim. Dress up in your costumed best to go undercover and over the top. There'll be fun for all ages, including a photo booth and the chance to make hamantaschen (traditional Purim cookies).

The Purim holiday also invites people to feed the hungry and stand up for social justice. Come celebrate and participate in these acts of repairing the world: bring canned foods to donate to the San Francisco Food Bank, sign up to volunteer at Glide Memorial Church and create misloah manot (care packages) for seniors at local residential facilities. We stand connected at the JCCSF!
