With over 60 people in attendance, ranging in age from 1 years old to 90, the festivities included a bounce house, huge ga-ga ball pit, face painting, carnival games, and crafts.

The congregation provided a costume boutique for those who needed help with their disguise. Lots of hamantashen were consumed. The event culminated in a traditional Purim costume parade and contest.

“Purim is the perfect holiday to reach out to members of our Pasco County community who may not know that the Federation is here for them. “ said Maxine Kaufman, Director of Arts and Culture at the Federation.

Eileen Hochstadt, president of Beth Tefillah, declared the event a success, “proven by the miles of smiles on all the kinder’s faces as they bounced in the ‘bouncy house,’ putted at the miniature golf game, dripped jelly on their creative Purim costumes from the delicious hamantaschen they gobbled down.
