Purim @ Clayhall
After treading the boards for many years, Rabbi Redberg and his crew recently embarked on a world tour celebrating their unique, underwhelming plethora of Purim Spiels. Clayhall’s loss is Peru’s gain and so, this year, Purim kicks off on Motsei Shabbos, Saturday 15 March with the Megilla reading at 7.30 pm (Shabbos ends at 6.52 pm). This will be followed by refreshments in the Sadie and Solomon Redberg Hall. On Sunday morning, Shacharis begins at 8.15 am followed by the Megilla at 9.00 am. The community is then invited to a Grand Breakfast (closing date was 6 March) which will commence at 9.45 pm also coincidentally in the SSRH. A delectable and enticing spread awaits under the able and most competent direction of Mr and Mrs Papsie. Fancy dress will be encouraged and Rabbi Redberg’s understudy is ready to organise proceedings. Then at 10.30 am, the children can enjoy a selection of great Purim arts and crafts activities including tzedaka box and Mishloach manos bag making, hand puppets, face painting and mask making.
