Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life

SHABBAT and PURIM (Live + Virtual)


March 22, 2024    
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In his monthly message, Rabbi James shared the idea of a half-Shekel (something that teaches us that we need others to become whole). For Purim, you are invited to bring something that is a piece of yourself to share with a Coalition member.  That might be a photograph, an article, a piece of music, a recipe, or something else entirely.  It needn’t be anything big, but should be something that gives you a sense of joy.  During the Purim service, we will invite you to share your “half Shekel” item with another member of the Coalition and to receive something in return.

Join Rabbi James and each other for Shabbat with a bit of Purim joy and the Megillah reading mixed in!

We will begin at 6:00 pm (clocks forward, new time!). The live service will be at the home of Rich Pomerantz and Kim DeYoung ($30 pp). For virtual attendees, the Zoom link will be sent once you contact us and let us know you are interesting in joining.

We ask that all those who reserve advise us should their plans change so that we can have an accurate count for our organizers, thank you.
