Two Purim events

Hands-on Purim activities for children of all ages will also be offered.

Visitors to the Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills can take part in "Purim Pandemonium." There will be carnival games, a costume parade, face-painting, singing, juggling and more for youngsters and the young at heart. For refreshment, Purim pastries (hamantaschen) will be available. Visitors are encouraged to bring travel-sized items for donation to Brown's Memorial Shelter.
