We’re schpielin’ in the rain, 
just schpielin’ in the rain,
what a glorious feeling,
we’re happy again!

You won’t want to miss this year’s Purim Schpiel–as they do every year, our talented clergy, staff, and volunteers retell the story of Esther (YAY!), Mordechai (YAY!), and Haman (BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!). And this year, for the first time ever, there’s tap dancing!
