avatar

despicable_me_2_minions-1920x1080

PURIM CELEBRATIONS AND MEGILLAH READINGS:
Wednesday at 5:30 pm – Dinner followed by Megillah reading and “A Minyan of Minions”, followed by DJ party
Thursday at 9:30 am – Full traditional Megillah reading at Temple Ner Tamid in Peabody (note there is no regular Thursday minyan at 6:55 am)

What is A Minyan of Minions?  It’s Wednesday evening’s Purim shpiel theme!  (Minions, pictured above, are cute, silly yellow characters from the popular movie Despicable Me.)

We are looking for minions to help act out a (very) short version of the story – kids and adults.  There are no lines, as “Gru” will be narrating.  But we invite the minions to act and babble like minions!
If any adults or kids are interested, please let me (rabbi.adler@tbabeverly.org) know by Sunday.  We would love to have adult participation!  Also let me know if you want parts of the costumes we can provide (see below) or you will make your own. 
We can provide:
Yelllow knit hats and pipe cleaners to make hair
Paper minion goggles
wigs for Esther, Vashti
crowns
If you want you can add yellow shirts and jeans, black gloves, etc.
Of course, everyone should feel free to wear whatever costume you want to wear for Purim – there will be a contest for adults!
Hag Purim sameach – A very happy Purim!

avatar

Grodin_standingUP-Hi-ResJoin women from many Jewish organizations, including the TBA Sisterhood, for a free night of laughs and socializing on Monday, March 2, at Temple Ner Tamid, 7:30 p.m. Snow date is March 3.

This annual meeting of the Combined Jewish Women’s Organizations features Marion Grodin, daughter of funnyman Charles Grodin and author of Standing Up: A Memoir of a Funny (not always) Life. Grodin knows firsthand that laughter is truly the best medicine, having not only survived breast cancer and divorce, but also various addictions – including an inappropriate relationship with Häagen-Dazs.

AR-131029674

For the last decade, Grodin has been one of the hottest comics in the country. She is a favorite at New York City’s top clubs, including Standup NY and Gotham Comedy Club, where she regularly headlines. Grodin has toured with Linda Ronstadt, shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Roseanne Barr and Robin Williams, and has been seen on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and ABC’s The View.
