The joyous holiday of Purim is celebrated every year by more Jews in Rome.
Saturday night, Rabbi Lazar read first the Meghillah for the synagogue “Bet Eliyahu” in Parioli and then at the Chabad center followed by gourmet Hamantashen.
Sunday morning at 7 am Rabbi Lazar read for a few people that had the need to listen to the Meghillah early.
At 8:30 am another reading at Masbia’s distribuition of packages for the needy and at 11 am and 12:30 pm in the quarter of the ex-Jewish ghetto.
Before the festive meal Rabbi Lazar read once more and again at the conclusion of the meal.
The meal, with over 70 participants, was accompanied by the music of Maurizio Di Veroli, the food partially catered by Little Tripoli, a face painter and lots of Lechaim!
