    Purim @ Adas 5778
    Wednesday, Feb 28th 5:30p to Thursday, Mar 1st 7:15a
    This year our Purim prism will be “The Jungle”. When life and society feels like it offers nothing but the challenges and turbulences of the Jungle, humans must muster a strength of heart, a resilience, which can carry them through. As you enter Adas this year, you’ll experience a 360* Jungle effect. Throughout the building we’ll experientially play on some of the key ingredients one needs to employ in order to survive and thrive in a jungle. The ability to find food, secure water, build shelter, and survive predators requires wit, resilience, traveling in packs (community), silence, tenacity, ferocity, and a healthy dose of faith in a hidden God.
