Temple Israel focused on ecological awareness at their Purim celebrations this year.
Stalls sold food and drinks, and of course hamentashen, as well as reusable shopping bags made of parachute material and tin cans lined with hessian as plant pots to grow parsley for Pesach.
Games included eco-bricks hung on strings that were used as targets for tennis ball throws, an eco-brick making race, ‘fishing’ for sustainable fish, and a fun game of eco-bingo.
After eating, drinking, playing and socialising the Megillah reading and Purim spiel was chanted and performed by Rabbi Greg and congregants.
