Purim Unmasked: The Serious Business
of Merry-Making

10:00-11:00am
Congregation Bnai Amoona

Rabbi Carnie Rose will discuss Purim, the most jovial of our holy days. Yet the themes and issues raised in the Scroll of Esther are amongst the most serious and challenging that contemporary Jews face. Join Rabbi Carnie Rose for a fascinating exploration of these deep, existential and often overlooked lessons of Purim. All are welcome and no previous experience necessary.
