Purim was celebrated in traditional manner at the Synagogue in Dundee, with a Megillah reading followed by a party. Ages ranged from under a year to considerably older, and people came from as far afield as Coupar Angus, Dundee, Glasgow, Kirkcaldy and St Andrews to celebrate with SCoJeC.
It was a suitably
motley crowd! Two potentates from Persia mingled with the Blues Brothers from New York, while those not in fancy dress donned silly hats in honour of the occasion. Albert Kirshen very ably leined the Megillah, accompanied by much vigorous hooting, rattling and all manner of other hullabaloo at the appropriate times.
Although the weather was rather chilly, nobody had to struggle through snow or rain to get to the shul, as had been feared, and once there, the atmosphere was definitely warm throughout the festivities. A convivial supper rounded off the evening in suitable style!
