Celebrate Purim at Or Haneshamah: Ottawa’s DECONSTRUCTIONIST Community!
Join the community that NEVER wants its own BUILDING in our seriously silly, tasty, and fabulously-garbed Erev Purim. Together, we’ll make and distribute Mishlo’ach Manot -- traditional goody baskets -- hear Megilat Esther in our traditionally-untraditional mixture of English, Hebrew and Silly, collect donations for the Kosher Food Bank, parade our costumes, taste-test Hamentashen and hand out fabulous prizes for Best Costumes and Best Hamentashen, and raise our voices in OrH harmony. So costume-up, bake and bring a batch of Hamentashen to compete or to share, and bring spare change for our collection of Matanot L’evyonim (gifts for those in need).
