RANDOLPH, NJ — “Purim in Disney” is Chabad of Randolph's creative twist to this year’s community celebration of Purim, the holiday commemorating the Jewish people’s salvation in Persia of old. The festivities will be held at Chabad of Randolph on March 21st, featuring the Megillah reading followed by a buffet dinner and magical entertainment by TJ TANA.
Billed as the most joyous date on the Jewish calendar, the daylong holiday commemorates the nullification in 356 B.C.E. of a Persian decree calling for the extermination of the Jewish people throughout the Persian Empire as told in the biblical Book of Esther. Chabad’s original spin on this age-old holiday has helped bring the spirit of Purim to Randolph year after year.
The event is a community-wide program, and all are welcome to join, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background. Participants will enjoy dinner, entertainment, Disney themed masquerade contest, music, dancing and more!
In the spirit of Purim, participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite Disney character, and there will be a competition for the most innovative and creative entries.
