A long time ago in an empire far, far away, there was a villain, a heroine, a sage, a king, and a murderous plot! Could this be a page out of Jewish history from the palace of Shushan in ancient Persia, or an epic intergalactic adventure with prominent cosmic characters?

Mash up Star Wars with the Purim story. Come dressed as your favorite character, or plan a group costume! Bring your lightsabers, be the most powerful Jedi ever, let the wookie win, or just travel through hyperspace as we read Megillat Esther. Non-participation is the path to the dark side.

The evening begins at 7:30 pm with Ma'ariv, and from there we launch into the Megillah reading, while snacking on Purim nosh and drink. Feel free to contribute your preferred beverage. Wondering which liquors are kosher? Ask Rabbi Ben-Gideon.
