Adult Program with special Purim celebration

On March 8 at 10:00 am, Or Emet’s program will be about Jewish LGBTQ+ identity, including historical and contemporary issues and how to be an advocate.

A Purim celebration will follow from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This year, as a special Purim treat, Or Emet will host a performance by the Eisner Klezmorim presenting a rendition of Megillah, with costumes, live music, storytelling, groggers, dancing, singing, laughter, and of course, hamantashen. There will also be an abridged offering of carnival activities.

Or Emet 2019/5780 High Holiday Services and Events

The High Holidays open the Jewish year with the most important message of Jewish history: human dignity is not the gift of destiny; it is a human achievement requiring courage and self-reliance. We assess our behavior during the past year and affirm the possibilities for change, improvement and happiness. Only human will and intelligence can tame the environment, making it less terrifying and conducive to happiness. While some things are beyond our control, others may be conquerable requiring courage and self-reliance.
