The event, now in its 28th year, has become a hallmark of Jewish joy and unity.  "This celebration brings Jews of all ages and backgrounds together with the single purpose of sharing the joy and warmth of our common Jewish heritage," says Rabbi Levi Vogel, Director of Chabad S. Augustine.

The event’s theme, PURIM IN ITALY

In addition to the joyous Purim spirit, for which the annual event has become popular, this year the crowd will be entertained with live music and song.

Get ready to be enthralled with a Live Performance by the James & Sylvia Acoustic Guitar Duo. Jim & Sylvia are performing/recording artists and have released more than fifteen CDs including Classical and Contemporary guitar styles. Jim & Sylvia Kalal are multifaceted guitarists with a very diverse playlist who have a life- long focus on many styles of music.
