Purim Royale

Join Moishe Houses from around the DMV in celebration of a tale so grand. Put on your dazzling gowns and dapper suits, or dress in a memorable Purim costume.  Young adults from around the DMV gather for a soiree of charm and mystery you won’t forget!

The World Upside Down

Join Adas Israel for an off-the-wall Purim experience again this year. This year’s theme, The World Upside Down, is an ecstatic embrace of a core experience at the heart of Purim: the day simply confounds our grasp on reality!

Grogger and Glow

Experience a full megillah reading and an unconventional spiel, a satirical spin on the traditional Purim story. Then, enjoy hamentaschen, dancing, and plenty of libations at our blacklight after-party. Following the spiel, dance, play games, and get competitive on the beer pong court at our blacklight after-party. Rock your favorite Purim costume and make sure your outfit is ready to glow under the blacklights.
