Purim 5781: Maskin’ Up
02/25/2021 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST
It’s time to mask up, Mishkan! Yes we’ve been masking up every time we go outside since last Purim, but give those masks a break and put on a festive one instead. We’re bringing this year’s Purim celebrations to you in four distinct parts, all for the cost of one event. Join us for what you will, and make sure you’re wearing your holiday best. Learn more about the night’s activities here.

Headline Act: Drunk History + Purim Spiel (7:30-8:30pm CT) *Rated R*
Headline Act: Drunk History + Purim Spiel The main event features Rabbi Lizzi a wee bit shnockerd retelling the story of Purim with re-enactments by community members. You know, kind of like Drunk History meets Haman, followed by the Saturday Night Live of Jewish holiday traditions. Our Purim Spielers are sure to dazzle you as they poke fun of your favorite spiritual community. Bring your favorite beverage and wear a costume to get in the spirit.
Encore: Traditional Megillah Reading! (8:30pm CT)
Stick around to fulfill the mitzvah of hearing the megillah. Community members will read the whole megillah with comedic commentary by our Rabbinic team.
