Purim 2021


What's Happening for Purim 2021
Thursday, February 25th at 7:00pm on Zoom

Mask Contest 🎭
This is the year of the mask! Decorate a Covid mask or make a full face mask from papier mâché, whatever your fancy. We will be having a contest in the following categories: most unusual, most comical, best use of Native Plants (eat your heart out Rose Parade!), best parody of TBI life. If you win, the Rabbi will recite a custom written Limerick in your honor and of course, you get bragging rights!

Purim Cocktails with the After Shul Club- 6PM!

Signature cocktails, The Esther-O-Gin, The Stop! Haman Time. You won't be able to distinguish Haman (boo!) from Mordechai.

Sign Up to Read Megillah
Want to express some serious Purim joy? Take part in our traditional shared Megillah reading. Pick a chapter and give us your best table read. Character voices highly encouraged in Hebrew or English!

Blessing of the Animals
Get your pets a bracha during this ceremony honoring the human-animal bond. Animals have offered us emotional support and love during a difficult year and have made some legendary cameos on Zoom. This time we are sending them a formal invitation to join us! Bring your dogs, cats, birds, goats, mice, chickens, fish, and even stuffed pets to get a blessing at the end of our Megillah reading. Just after the Megillah reading and a good reason to stay until the end. How often can you take your pets to shul?

Mishloach Manot
Members, keep an eye on your mailboxes for some TBI Themed Purim joy. Many thanks to our leadership team for organizing the Pandemic Friendly Mishloach Manot by mail.
Matanot L'evyonim
It is traditional to give gifts to the less fortunate on Purim (and any time of year really, but especially now). In lieu of our annual Drean Hanley Z"l Sova Food Pickup, we suggest a donation to any of these honorable charitable organizations.
SOVA - Food Assistance 
MAZON - Food Justice and Structural Inequality
SHOWERS OF HOPE - Mobile Showers and Hygiene Support for unhoused Angelenos
Make Your Own Groggers
Groggers (noisemakers) are easy to put together using empty plastic bottles. Decorations can be anything you'd like--ribbons, stickers, paint. Learn how to make your own here.
