Celebrate Purim

Purim is Jewish tradition’s time to be happy! From our adults-only Yacht Rock Purim Shpiel to the amazing Purim-palooza – including megillah reading – for families, plus the opportunity to share sweet Purim gift packages with family and friends, and the opportunity to support those who are in need, we are excited to offer something for everyone!

Purim Merriment
Purim Shpiel: Yacht Rock!
Saturday, March 23


   Doors Open 7pm
   Adults 21+ only

Join us for an adults-only evening of music, revelry, and lots of fun with friends as we celebrate Purim together with our live and in-person house band and not-quite-ready-for-prime-time cast members for the first time since 2019! 

This year, the music of the show will be drawn from the “Yacht Rock” genre…the cool, smooth, and easy hits of the late 70’s and early 80’s.  Don't be left on the pier; get your tickets today! Nautical attire or other costumes encouraged.

Plentiful appetizers, drinks and dessert will be served.

If you'd like to attend but think you might not know anyone, simply email Member Relations co-chairs, Sarah Mesnik and Robyn Glazier member_relations@tbsneedham.org, and they'll make sure someone is ready to welcome you that evening.

Purim Packages for US Troops
Sunday, March 3
1-2pm 
Designed for Families with Children in Grades K-6

 

Bring Purim cheer to Jewish members of the US Armed Forces serving overseas. Following the success of our Chanukah efforts, the Jewish Soldiers Project has invited us to create more packages, this time for Purim. We will assemble bags of goodies, including cards we make and cards made by the younger children at TBS earlier in the day. 

This is part of our monthly Mitzvah Makers series, which include hands-on opportunities for families with children in grades K-6 to help heal the world.

Matanot L’evyonim

We invite you to join the entire TBS community in doing the mitzvah of giving matanot l'evyonim, gifts to the poor, on this festive holiday.   We will - as in past years - collect funds for Yad Chessed's Matanot L'evyonim campaign and send in one donation from our TBS family.  To participate in the mitzvah by donating online, simply click here, fill out the form, be sure to select Rabbi Markley's Discretionary Fund from the list of funds, and indicate "Purim" in the notes field. You can also send a check payable to "Rabbi Markley's Discretionary Fund" to the Temple, and simply write "Purim" in the memo line.

 

Thank you for participating in this Purim mitzvah!

Mishloach Manot

Purim baskets (mishloach manot) are back! Bring joy to someone’s Purim and participate in this community-wide project! Each recipient will receive one bag signed by all gifters. The colorful bag is brimming with everything you need for a festive night in: hamantaschen in a variety of flavors, hot drinks, candy from Israel, snacks and goodies, plus a reusable snack bag to store them in! 

 

Look for an email with your personalized link.

Hamantaschen Dough Orders

Baking hamantaschen is a highlight of the year! Order your own batch of dough to make cookies at home. With dough made by the bakery, you get to do the fun part. Roll it out, cut and fill with your favorite fillings for quick, fresh-from-the-oven treats. This two pound batch makes about two dozen small hamantaschen. Pick up your dough from TBS the week of March 18.

Note: As of March 1, we have reached capacity on hamantaschen dough sales. If you'd like to be on a waiting list in case we are able to get more, please email Jessica Baim.
