This Sunday we got together to celebrate the Jewish Festival of Purim, with visiting speaker Richard Harvey from ‘Jews for Jesus’. We enjoyed dressing up as FUN, joyful characters with a great turn out of weird and wacky costumes – with PRIZES going to Jean and Rueben!
Johnie and Becky led us in an impromptu performance of the play of Esther with great comedic effect from City Gate volunteers. There was much ‘booing’ of Haman and ‘cheering’ of Mordechai and Esther!
We celebrated with Purim songs and special foods, enjoying the taste of Hamentaschen – otherwise known as ‘Haman’s ears’ and feasting together!
