Purim at the ECC
There are so many opportunities to foster a sense of Jewish identity throughout the year. We are experiencing that with the holiday of Purim. Purim is a holiday marked by joyous activities. The children are experiencing this holiday in a wide variety of activities; dressing up, holiday crafts, giving food to those in need, hearing the Purim story, and many more classroom experiences.
Through these fun-filled activities, we fulfill the four Mitzvot of Purim.
