Huge Purim Carnival Brings 2,000 from Diverse Jewish South PBC Together

About the Event
Two thousand people had an incredible time together on Sunday, February 25, right on our Federation campus. Joyous, colorful Purim Carnivals have always been part of the holiday’s celebrations around town. But for South Palm Beach County, something exceptional happened this year. Fifteen local Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Chabad synagogues and organizations including the Levis JCC, JARC and PJ Library® changed it up and joined forces to create something phenomenal for everyone. The first CommUNITY-Wide Purim Carnival took place on Sunday, February 25, 2018 from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m.
