Hundreds of young adults celebrated Purim in Style aboard Young Adult Chabad’s Purim cruise.

The event featured phenomenal catering with plenty of food and a well stocked Bar. DJ Gee kept the crowd entertained with an upbeat mix of Purim music and the Megillah reading was complimented by a simultaneous slideshow featuring the Purim story with a host of modern characters such as Ahmedinijad as Haman and Cindarella as Queen Esther!

“The two hours flew by quickly and people we’re having so much fun that they were disappointed to disembark when we got back to port”, said Rabbi Eli Feldman, Director of Young Adult Chabad.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JEMS- JEMs (Jewish Education Matters) was on a real roll this Purim, beginning with 120 coming to Hamentash baking in Our Big Kitchen, 50 going to spread the Joy (and the Hamentashen they baked) to nursing home residents, continuing with a teen Purim party and Megillah reading and culminating with 450 turning up for Purim bubble mania where they enjoyed a bubble and balloon show, Mishloach Manot gifts, smiley face necklace making and a delicious BBQ buffet dinner.
