The 8th Annual Community-Wide LGBTQ PURIM Party and Megillah Reading at JCC Manhattan!!!

Presented by JQY & JCC Manhattan

Dust off those costumes, and break out the groggers!
Join over 300 friends, old and new, for our 8th Annual LGBTQ Community Purim Party and 7th Annual Megillah Reading, complete with appetizers, Hamantaschen, an OPEN BAR, costume contest and dance party!

Date: Wednesday, March 4th
Time: 6:30 PM Megillah Reading; 8:00 PM Party and Costume Contest
Cover: $20.00 ($10.00 for students at the door)

We begin the evening at 6:30 p.m. with a special traditional Megillah reading by members of our own community! The festivities continue 8:00 p.m into the night with an OPEN BAR, dancing, yummy food, and a costume contest with prizes!

Come for the Megillah, come for the dancing, or just come to fulfill the Mitzvah of getting so drunk that you can’t tell the difference between Esther and Mordechai!
…At this party that may be easier than you think!
