This Shabbat we announce the beginning of the month of Adar, and it comes not a moment too soon in this cold and dreary winter. Just stocking up on poppy seed filling and trying to create a costume starts me on the path to joy. Aren’t we lucky that Judaism contains giddy joy as well as serious introspection and ethical responsibilities?! In the next few weeks, we’ll give you more details about our Purim celebration(s). In the meantime I hope you consider joining us at the Women’s Club Purim Bash on February 28th. RSVP’s are due today!
