At the Morris Winchevsky Shule (our secular Sunday school), students learn about the Jewish exile
in Persia and about Purim as a celebration of Esther and Vashti’s bravery against the authority of Ahasuerus. They explore the themes of identity and the protection offered by masks, both real and philosophical. Of course, masks have taken on an even deeper meaning with the pandemic..
Join the Morris Winchevsky School (MWS) and the United Jewish People’s Order (UJPO)-Toronto for
a Purim extravaganza. This year we will get together in person and our theme is “Our Stories.” Drawing on our diverse roots, we’re encouraging people to dress up as a favourite relative, and children to bring a photocopy of family photo which we will make into an art project. We’ll also have the Purim Shpiel (story), interactive activities and games, pizza, Hamantashn, surprise guests, prizes, and of course, we’ll all be masked. Be sure to come in costume!
We’ll be celebrating on Sunday, March 20, 2022 — 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. — at the 918 Bathurst Culture, Arts, Media & Education Centre.
