Hey, Siri! Play ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie

2024 Purim Carnival at Piers Place: Netzer channichimot making their Mishloach Manot


This year’s Purim kids carnival was superhero themed. It was hosted at Piers Place — a perfect hero cave. I’d even say better than Batman’s.

We opened the doors to all of our heroes in the late afternoon. The kids enjoyed a few games at the different booths, took photos, and danced to the music! Many channichimot made new friends and welcomed those newcomers.

A takeaway from the afternoon was definitely seeing how happy, excited and encouraging they all were. Their friends and first timers instilling confidence in them while struggling with a game or two was heartwarming. We ended off with an interactive, comedic play about Purim by our rabbinic team.

We had an amazing turnout, with a great group of heroes. Can’t wait to see you at the next one!
