Purim 5783

The festive holiday of Purim begins Monday evening, March 6th and continues through Tuesday, March 7th. Let's celebrate TOGETHER, CSI-style! This year, we are back with an exciting gathering to enjoy a festive meal and our creative Megillah experience! More than any other Jewish holiday, Purim is about joy. Purim is about letting go of the masks of propriety and revealing our silliness. As you may have guessed, CSI has a plan! Get ready to lighten and brighten the season with yet another unprecedented communal experience and the refreshing playfulness of Purim at CSI.

Scroll down to check out our full list of Purim happenings, including Purim Dinner and Megillah Reading, The History of the Purim Shpiel, and Mishlaoch Manot



We're excited for our signature unique and fun-filled Megillah reading on Monday evening, March 6th! Our in-person (and virtual) Megillah reading will take place in the Sanctuary accompanied by our Megillah Mugshots pictorial slideshow of Shearith Israelites "performing" the Book of Esther in photographs. It all begins with a Family Dinner at 6 pm, followed by the reading at 6:45 pm.

Please note: Regular evening services will still be held at 6 pm.

A second, full Megillah reading will take place during Morning Services on Tuesday, March 7 at 6:50 am on Zoom at our regular minyan link


THE HISTORY OF THE PURIM SHPIEL: sunday, march 12 @ 4:30 pm
