Community invited to celebrate Purim with TBI at carnival

The community is invited to join in the fun as Temple Beth Israel hosts a Purim carnival on Sunday, March 1 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The day will feature Maui Wowi coffees and smoothies, face painting, tacos, balloon art, a bounce house, games and much more.

Join Cantor Paul Buch at 10 a.m. before the start of the carnival for songs and a Purim Shpiel.

Purim is a joyous celebration of Jewish survival and marks the day Esther, Queen of Persia, saved the Jewish people from execution by Haman, the advisor to the Persian king. Esther had previously hidden her Jewish heritage, but bravely revealed herself to her husband, the king, and asked him to save her people.

There is no cost to attend the celebration. The community is welcome.

Temple Beth Israel is located at 3033 N. Towne Ave., Pomona. For more information on the family-friendly carnival, email
