Dare to Prepare! Purim: Masking and Un-Masking

  • Oshman Family JCC 3921 Fabian Street Palo Alto, CA, 94303 United States

A workshop of fun, festivity and intrigue as we prepare for the upcoming holiday of Purim. Often understood as a ritualized celebration of the breaking down of our day-to-day persona and identity, Purim is a time for questioning the old and trying on the new. Together we will delve into Jewish and modern sources on the way Purim flips outcomes and identities on their heads and then will explore resonance in our own lives through an interactive mask-making experience. Leave with new insights into yourself, the holiday and a mask to celebrate in!
