Erev Purim Service

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 13 Adar II 5779

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

CBE’s Community Purim Services and Megillah Reading are a highlight of the year. This year, over 30 adults, teens, and children from our CBE community will chant verses from the Megillah! Join Rabbi Mike and Cantor Sarra in telling the story of Esther with costumes, comedy, and music. Renowned Klezmer musician Barry Shapiro will accompany members of CBE’s own Klezmer Band to make this is a special musical event. If you’d like, bring homemade noisemakers and wear a costume! We will be collecting donations for the Acton Food Pantry in order to fulfill an important mitzvah of Purim ("matanot l’evyonim"), so please bring a canned good. All are welcome!

Mr. Shapiro, a Klezmer and Jazz pianist and accordionist, is a graduate of The New England Conservatory. One of the founding members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band (along with Hankus Netsky, CBE’s 2009 Artist in Residence), he currently leads and plays with several bands, including the “Barry Shapiro Orchestra,” and teaches Israeli dancing.
