Dear Members of Or Chadash,
It's almost time for the Purim Carnival at Or Chadash, and this year we have a special surprise: The TCNJ Circus Club is coming! Mark your calendars and please join us for what is always a super time for young and old alike! The Purim Carnival will be on Sunday, March 1 at Or Chadash. The fun begins with the Megilla reading at 10:30 AM; then, the TCNJ Circus Club will put on a show starting at 11:00 AM. Afterwards, we'll all get to enjoy meeting the Circus Club members --try some tricks, learn to juggle, and make your own juggling ball! The Carnival Committee will offer up the usual spread of games, along with the photo booth, Esther's Salon, and carnival food. This is an ideal event for all children pre-K to 4th grade, but bring the family and bring a friend. Find something crazy to wear --it's fun to dress up in costumes! Bring a pasta-box grogger for our noisiest tzeddakah project ever!
Ticket prices to play the games are very low, and all players win prize tickets to use in the Prize Room. Hope to see you at the Carnival this year! Please check these sites for any questions: Purim Project Website
