Family Fun Planned for All Faiths At Purim Carnival March 24

Purim Festival for youngsters of all faiths March 24. Purim Festival for youngsters of all faiths March 24.

SARATOGA SPRINGS —Temple Sinai will host its annual fun-filled Community Purim Carnival from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 24 at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 50 Pine Road.

Purim is a holiday celebrating a biblical story about overcoming racism and oppression. It is traditionally celebrated with costume and revelry and has been called “the Jewish Mardi Gras.” It’s the biggest party of the Jewish year. Families and children from the community are welcome to join this program for youngsters of all faiths.

The event will feature more than 15 interactive games and activities, dance parties, a photo-booth, crafts, snacks and carnival games with prizes. A central feature of the Purim holiday is a retelling of the story from a special Hebrew scroll called a megillah- this year’s telling runs from 9:45-10:15 a.m. The story will be told in English, and will also include many of Temple Sinai’s religious school students reading from the scroll in Hebrew.

Wristbands for unlimited games and activities are $10 each. Popcorn, cotton candy, and beverages will be available for purchase.
