As Purim approaches, The Aftselakhis Spectacle Committee, Jews for Racial & Economic Justice, the Workmen’s Circle and other Jewish organizations will hold an annual Purimshpil carnival to celebrate Purim, a joyous holiday that commemorates a period when Jews in Persia successfully resisted oppression.

This year’s event at the East Midwood Jewish Center will feature family-friendly activities, including hand-built carnival games, Jewish music from around the world and a Purimshpil that draws from Masha Gessen’s "Autocracy: Rules for Survival." Given heightened concerns across the nation about hate, violence and deportations, the event will embrace social justice themes and include activities that highlight the need to stand up for immigrant rights.
