The Holiday of FUNPURIM
Happiness, excitement and celebration, all day long!
Last year’s Purim in the Wild West, was epic and one that we have held in our hearts over the past year as the final public event before COVID hit!
This year Purim will be different, yet SPECTACULAR!
Everyone will have to pre-register, as will will only be able to accomodate limited capacity. We cannot wait to see you in a COVID safe way! Check out what is happening!
A beautiful ‘Shushan’ float will bring PURIM to LIFE on the streets of Elstree and Borehamwood. You will be able to stand outside your house, dressed up in your PURIM best with fancy dress, and wave and feel the purim joy! All children will receive a Mishloach Manot package, and have an opportunity to enter an epic dress up competition by sending in their selfies with the ‘Shushan’ float in the background.
Over the coming weeks until Purim we will be coordinating the float route. To guarantee the float to come down your road, at least 5 people on the road must register, so let your neighbours know and make certain your road can be part of the fun!
We have the opportunity for a brother and sister to be on the float to be King Achashverosh and Queen Esther (only siblings for social distance). If your children would like the opportunity for an hour slot, please select that option!
Please note, besides those allocated no-one will be allowed on or near the float, and everyone will have to stand by their house or driveway and keep strict social distancing.
Purim Spectacular is free for everyone to be a part. There is an optional donation to help cover the costs, and any contribution to bring this community spirit will be greatly appreciated!
All those registered will be notified of the route on the days leading up to Purim – so get your fancy dress ready, and let’s get ready to party!!
Every hour on the hour Megillah readings. Pre – booking is essential!
Pick your timeslot. Readings will be limited to 10 people or 3 families each sitting in bubbles.
The Jewish Life Centre will be sanitized between each reading, and there will be no socialising before or after.
It will be your responsibility to make sure your children are sitting with you at all times, as no one will be allowed to walk around.
Anyone over the age of 11 must wear a mask at all times when they are in the Jewish Life Centre building.
Giving charity to those in need on the day of Purim is one of the four special mitzvot for the day. Any funds donated through this link will be given to families in need on Purim Day.
