Community Purim Carnival
& Spiel To Support CBS Educational Programs
Sunday, March 12
11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Koret Hall, CBS campus
Carnival: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Long Live The Spiel!: 2 – 3 p.m.
Megillah reading: 3 – 4 p.m.
Political intrigue, unrestrained vanity and ego, misogyny, revenge fantasies – are we talking about the Purim story or today’s headlines? During this topsy-turvy time, Purim takes on special resonance.
Join the CBS community on March 12 to celebrate a world turned upside down!
There will be carnival games, a bounce house, a dance-off, delicious food prepared by CBS Executive Chef Jane Sykes, two raffles with amazing prizes, a silent auction, a performance by youth band, Planet 17, an interactive megillah reading, and booze aplenty! This year, however, we’re also producing an original CBS Purim spiel musical featuring a cast and crew of members and adapted lyrics and music from the famous musical, Les Miserables. Long Live The Spiel! : The Exciting Story of Esther to the Music of “Les Misérables” will be performed in the CBS Sanctuary.
We will also have a Music & Movement Room designed for children three years of age and younger. This special activity is sponsored by the San Francisco Jewish Baby Network and PJ Library. Popular Bay Area songster Jonathan Bayer will be playing music in the room and we will have lots of books from PJ Library on hand for your kiddos to enjoy.
It’s going to be an absolute blast…and it’s for a great cause! All proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to support and enhance CBS youth education programming: the CBS Family Preschool, Shabbat School, and USY teen activities. We look forward to seeing you (or Esther or Hodor or Simone Biles) there!
