A Fun-Filled Purim Party!

We were so pleased that so many of you (well over 200!) attended Wednesday night's Purim party at City-State Brewing Co. (thank you, James and Melinda Warner, and the terrific City-State staff). It was multifaceted fun for all ages, featuring: a full throated Purim spiel (kol hakavod to Dan Rogger, Keiana Mayfield, Allison Ackerman, Joe Hurowitz, Lou Perwien, and Sam Glaisyer!); a Purim Charity Cake/Pie Raffle; face painting, crown making, grogger making, and mishloach manot making stations; the megillah reading (kol hakavod to Michael Allen, Laurie Solnik, and Yosh Halberstam!); a plethora of eye catching costumes; a wide variety of hamantaschen and other yummy food; and the finest beer DC has to offer.
It was wonderful to all be together in person, with masks worn primarily for celebratory (not Covid) purposes -- and smiles visible all around!

A Joyous Hanukkah Celebration!

It was wonderful to be back together in person this year for the Annual Capitol Hill BID Community Menorah Lighting & Hill Havurah Hanukkah Celebration. More than 150 people, of all ages, attended.

Among the highlights were the kids dancing as dreidels to "Sevivon, Sov, Sov, Sov," the return of the Havurah Harmonists (in fine form), and a spectacular fire dancing performance by Kinetic Spinners.

If you couldn't be there, or want to re-live the night, you can view the livestream of the festivities at your convenience.

A Moving Simchat Torah Celebration!

We put an exclamation point on the string of fall holidays with our Simchat Torah celebration. Fortunately, the weather broke favorably, and we were able to parade to the Capitol Grounds and sing and dance with our two Torahs. We unscrolled the Torahs, got a close-up look at them, and read the very end and the very beginning. And we welcomed our kindergarteners to their "formal Jewish learning" with consecration.

We're happy that so many, of all ages, were able to join us!
