Upcoming Purim Activities

Wed, 01/17/2018 - 9:32pm -- TASblog

Purim is coming! Here are a few of the things happening at TAS to celebrate the holiday:

Order your Mishloch Manot Gift Bags through Sisterhood - order by February 5, 2018
Purim Carnival, 7th grade Purim Shpiel, and Megillah Reading - February 25th, 2018
Purim Shpiel - "A Lower East Side Story" - Wednesday, February 28 at 7pm
Yes, it's a spoof of West Side Story. The story (co-authored by Phyllis Cohen and Sally Isaacs) is about two early 1900's pushcart families, the Katzes and the Ratners, and their battle for territory on the corner of Delancey and Ludlow Streets. Needless to say, there is a rumble, and the weapon of choice is astonishing (or not!). In comes Haman, who takes advantage of their long-standing feud by creating fake news about each one and starting a bidding war for a low-rise he owns on that corner.
