This year, Purim holds heightened significance as Jews in Israel and worldwide experience one of the most difficult times in recent history. It also brings hope of the Jewish people overcoming the present challenges and a brighter future, as in the story of Purim, when the table was turned and with miracles from the Almighty, the Jews were victorious over their enemies.

Purim is observed by readings of the Megillah, sending gifts of food to friends, giving charity to the needy and enjoying a festive meal. It is also customary to eat a delightful cookie called Hamentashen, a triangular pastry filled with poppyseed, jelly, chocolate, etc.

Couvert: $18; Sponsor $180. To RSVP and for a complete schedule of Purim services/info/megasite, visit www.chabadoflaguna.com, or call 949.499.0770.

Chabad Jewish Center is located at 30804 S. Coast Highway, across from the Montage Resort.
