Purim 5777 (2017)

On the evening of March 11. members of the Y.J.C. community gathered to read the megillah and show off their costumes as well. We were then treated to our ninth annual Purimspiel wherein the talented cast, led by our distinguished narrator, Bernie Lipsy, re-told some stories from the bible that were introduced by tweets!  Enjoy the photos.
