Your Wait is Ogre! The Purim Shrek-tacular is almost here!

The community is invited to celebrate Purim at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 20 at The Jewish Theological Seminary, 3080 Broadway (at 122nd Street), New York City. The full megillah will be read.

The evening will feature students from JTS’s five schools. Through prayer and the reading of the megillah, the story of Purim will be retold featuring the music and plot of the ever-popular Shrek movies.

The celebration reflects JTS’s commitment to the synagogue as a space that engages its students and provides opportunities for creativity and leadership. The megillah will also be read in its entirety at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, March 21 in the same location.

Admission is free; photo ID required. For further information, contact Shira Fernbach at (212) 678-8839 or studentlife@jtsa.edu.
