Purim Festival at Urban Adamah

Celebrate Purim on the farm with Urban Adamah, Chochmat HaLevKehillah Community Synagogue, and Berkeley Moshav! Purim-themed crafts, music, and stories geared toward families and youth ages 0-12, followed by a community dinner will be offered for all. Children under 2 are free. Costumes are highly encouraged!


5:30 – 6:30 PM | Puppet Show, Holiday Crafts and Games

6:30 – 7:30 PM | Community Dinner (outdoors)

7:30 – 10:00 PM | Megillah Reading and Community Bash (Register Separately)

Puppet Show (Ages 0-6): Families are invited to join Jen Miriam Altman for music, puppets, and a pre-school friendly telling of the Purim story! Laugh at the silly King who likes to throw parties instead of ruling. Dance with Vashti who won’t come and dance because she is busy having her own dance party. Cheer for the Brave Ester who risks all to save her people. Clap and dance as Mordechai delivers his popular song… “Mordechai won’t bow down”. ‘Boo’ as Haman rolls the dice to set a day to punish Mordechai and his people. And be prepared for a surprise ending! This show will have you laughing, crying, praying, and dancing in the aisles. The puppet show is geared for families with kids ages 0 to 6 and will be held indoors.

Purim Carnival (Ages 6-12): While our younger community members have the option of our Purim puppet show, Urban Adamah will also be hosting a wide array of carnival-style activities for young people 6-12. Activities include making your own grogger to shake when we hear the name “Haman” during our community megillah reading, making mishloach manot bags to bring joy and sweetness to others, ring toss, cornhole, pin-the-hat-on-Haman and more.

Adults and their friends are invited to join later in the evening for our Purim Megillah Reading and Bash! Please note, registration for the second half of the evening is separate. 

6:30 – 7:30 pm Community Dinner featuring Shushan’s finest dishes

7:30 – 8:30 pm Celebratory Megillah Reading (Full Hebrew + Creative Interpretation)

8:30 – 11:00 pm Dance Party with Kiki Lipsett from The Shushan Queens and Sneaky T and the Big Wigs, Mystical Tea Lounge Experience with music, heart connections, and magical delights.

This is a costume party! And in the spirit of awareness and respect, we encourage people to dress in culturally appropriate costumes. Not confident in assessing whether or not your costume is culturally appropriate and respectful? Here’s an article to get you thinking. Thank you in advance for being mindful, and we hope you enjoy this year’s celebration. Chag Sameach!
