CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA — Temple Solel will host its annual Purim Carnival from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 28 at 3575 Manchester Ave. The carnival, which raises funds for students on financial assistance, will showcase a Pony Hop, inflatables and a nine-hole mini golf course. With more than 15 other activities, games, and cakewalks, this year’s event has something for people of all ages.
The general public is invited to attend, and ticket discounts are available. The temple will provide overflow parking at MiraCosta College with free shuttles to and from the carnival.
Purim is a long-standing Jewish holiday commemorating the freeing of Jews living under the authority of the Persian Empire as recorded in the biblical Book of Esther. The key message of Purim is that each of us has the potential to make a difference in the world. In celebrating Purim, it is traditional to exchange food and drink, give charity to the poor, and to wear masks and costumes. As with all Jewish holidays, Purim begins at sundown on the previous day.
