We’re taking Purim on the road this year! Start your road trip journey at the JCC where you’ll receive a welcome bag, take pictures in your costume, contribute a canned food item to our collection bin, and decorate your car before you head out on your ‘road trip’!

There will be 5 total stops on our Purim Road Trip Extravaganza including the Bridgewater Public Library, Temple Sholom, the Bridgewater Municipal Building, and more! There will be staff and pop-up tents at each location marking the exact location of each activity. Each car will receive a detailed map showing you where to go.

Activities include:

  • Make your own non-bake Hamantaschen
  • Design your own gragger
  • Carnival games
  • And more!

The final stop will be back at the JCC where we will test your Purim trivia knowledge! Prizes will be awarded at various points throughout the trip.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, on the road, and in your best Purim costume! This event will be happening rain or shine!
