A Night of Megillah and Music - Mekor Habracha Center City Synagogue Purim Celebration

March 15, 2014 8:15 PM

Mekor Habracha Center City Synagogue invites the Philadelphia Jewish community to celebrate the holiday of Purim with a night of Megillah and Music. One of the highlights of Mekor Habracha’s calendar, this year’s Purim festivities will take place on Saturday, March 15, at 8:15 p.m. at 2000 Chestnut Street, 2nd floor, in Center City.

Per tradition, attendees are welcome to arrive in costume. The evening will begin with Maariv evening prayers, followed by the reading of the Megillah, the Book of Esther. Noisemakers are also welcome.

After the Megillah reading, attendees will be treated to pizza, a shpiel (a comedic play based on the Purim story) and a performance by one of Philadelphia’s best-kept musical secrets, Moments of Wrong. Formed in 2009 by Mekor Habracha members Jimmy Costello, Jeremy Kriger, Craig Whitman, Jonathan Gradman and Josh Wolf, Moments of Wrong has become a staple of the synagogue’s annual Purim celebration and other events. The band’s Purim lineup features regulars Jonathan Gradman, Saul Rubin, Dave Schwartz, Jeremy Kriger, and Eli Hirsch, and special guest Asher Kahn. 

The Megillah will be read again on Sunday, March 16, following Shacharit morning prayers at 9:00 a.m.
