Bronx Jewish Center Purim Party

Bronx Jewish Center Purim Party

By Robert Press

The Bronx Jewish Center at Pelham Parkway held a very successful Purim Party where it was standing room only to see Jewish Standup Comedian Eli  Lebowicz. On hand to help Rabbi Saadia Pewzner celebrate the Purim holiday were new State Assemblyman John Zaccaro Jr. and Councilwoman Marjorie Velazquez. 

Traditional Purim food was served, Rabbi Pewzner read from the Megillah, and many people came in purim costumes. Purim is a Jewish holiday which commemorates the saving of the Jewish people from Hamen, an official of the Achaemenid Empire who was planning to have all of Persia’s Jewish subjects killed as recounted in the Book of Esther.
