A winter storm struck Louisville on the eve of Purim, yet Chabad maintained its holiday programming and over 70 people, including members of many of our local synagogues and temples braved the elements to join the celebration.
The storm continued through the night, however, forcing the postponement of the “Purim in Israel” dinner and celebration. Since the entire Jewish month of Adar is supposed to be joyous, Chabad rescheduled its gala at the Olmstead until the following Sunday night, March 8.
Over 140 people turned out for the kosher dinner that included Israeli falafel, schnitzel and Israeli borekas, prepared by the Olmstead supervised by Kentucky Kosher. A wide variety of Kosher Israeli wines were imported to Louisville for the evening as well, and there was live Jewish music, much singing and dancing.
Rabbi Avrohom Litvin, regional director of Chabad of Kentucky explained, “This was our 30th anniversary in Louisville and so many people wanted to celebrate this important community milestone. We thank each and every one for all of their good wishes, and commit to increase our programs and activities throughout this celebratory year”.
