BTS Purim Celebration
Thursday February 25, 7pm
Join us for a zany Zoom Megillah reading, including a hilarious Purim spiel. We'll be sending BTS members a gragger, song sheets and treats in advance. Non-members, please call the office at 860-243-3576 to make arrangements to pick up a goody bag. Funny masks and hats are not required, but will be applauded by the crowd. It's strictly BYOB this year and everyone's welcome, but you do need to register in advance, please.
with Rabbi Debra S. Cantor
Thursday March 25, 8:30am
It is traditional for first-born and only children to fast on the eve of Passover in memory of the 10th plague, when their lives were spared. That obligation is lifted if they are invited to a siyyum, a celebration of a completion of learning. Rabbi Cantor has been studying some texts related to Pesah, and will share some of that learning with you on the moring before Passover. Afterwards, she'll invite you to join her in a virtual se'udah shel mitzvah - a meal connected with a mitzvah (an offer you may not refuse according to Jewish law.) The only catch: it's virtual this year, so you gotta provide your own bagels and OJ.
Please note that, in order to preserve the sanctity and security of our worship and study, advance registration is required for all online BTS/Neshama events. Registration is required only once for any recurring event. you will receive confirmation by email and a reminder email with an event link 15 minutes prior to your meeting.
Thank you for your interest and participation. We look forward to gathering with you.
BTS/Neshama events are open to all and are offered free of charge unless otherwise noted.
