7:30pm - 10:00pm

This year's Purim celebration began at 7:30pm with a festive reading of the Megillah, which included a slide show and comic shenanigans on the bima. After that, we adjourned to the Social Hall for drinks, bagels and shmoozing.

Then several NHS members participated in a hilarious Purim Spiel play about the story of Esther, only all the parts were played by the reverse genders. Finally, all participants left with a shaloach manot bag of goodies to take home.
