Purim Celebration at Shomrei

My favorite Jewish holiday is Sukkot. Or is it Passover? After
celebrating Purim tonight with our Shomrei community, my new favorite
holiday has to be Purim.  The spirit, the crowd, the young people, the
not-so-young people, Lily leading us with such “ruach” and teaching us
new melodies, Lily directing the JLC acting troupe with her original
shpiel, Debra Caplan accompanying these incredibly talented singers and
actors at the piano, the overflowing bags of Mishloach Manot, and of
course, the 9th Annual Purim Simcha Band all contributed to a most
joyous Purim.

There may be a supermoon in the sky tonight, but everything and everyone
inside the sanctuary was absolutely super.

Special thanks to band members: Elliot, Mike, Rob, Mirella, Colin,
Brian, Jerilyn, Sol and Jay.  And a SUPER yasher koach to Mark Weinstein
for conducting the Simcha Band and encouraging us to play with zeal and
skill.

Happy Purim.
