Purim Festivities at Kittay House

Tenants at Kittay House Senior Apartments celebrated Purim at a festive party on Monday, February 25. 

Everyone received noisemakers (graggers) which they used liberally and masks to celebrate the spirit of the holiday. The music was joyful and inspired the partygoers to dance. Bags of chocolate treats topped off the fun. This was the culmination of several Purim related events at Kittay. 

Prior to the holiday, Rabbi Steinberg led the Jewish Culture class in an exploration of the book of Esther.

On Purim some twenty students from Yeshiva University danced, sang and made freilich (merry) with the Kittay tenants and passed out shalach manot (Purim baskets).  Later in the day a volunteer from Chabad read the megilla (the story of Purim).
