Metro Chicago Hillel Purim Celebration at Base!

  • Silverstein Base Hillel (map)

Purim is a holiday that celebrates the world turned upside down! An orphan becomes queen, a lowly Jew rises to power in Persia, and the kings' right hand man is hung on the gallows! 

This crazy story will come to life at Base Hillel on Thursday March 9th starting with triangle shaped dinner in celebration of Haman's three sided hat (think Pizza, tortilla chips, and anything else Chloe can find!), a bit of Purim study followed by hamentaschen baking with Paige, a chance to make bags of goodies to give to friends (mishloach manot), and an opportunity to give to those in need (an important Purim mitzvah) by giving donations to a variety of local organizations (please come with either $3-5 cash/change or a can of food).

If you have triangle shaped food requests let us know!
