Looking for more ways to celebrate? Here are some ideas from Jewish Learning Venture staff!

char loves to listen to — and chant! — the megillah.

Julia still work her shul’s Purim carnival, but misses when her kids would be there, too.

Rhona’s family loves distributing mishloach manot (gifts that include at least two different kinds of food and/or drink) to neighbors.

For the last several years, Robin has taken part in her synagogue’s Purim spiel — this year she’s playing the King and singing a Taylor Swift song!

Robyn’s family loves to give mishloach manot to friends and go to their synagogue to hear the Megillah and have a Purim celebration!
