CBE’s Community Purim Services and Megillah Reading are a highlight of the year. Join Rabbi Mintz and Cantor Spierer in telling the story of Esther with humor, costumes, and song. Come and hear CBE friends of all ages chant verses from the Megillah (scroll). Renowned Klezmer musician Barry Shapiro will join members of CBE’s own Klezmer Band to make this is a special musical evening. If you’d like, bring homemade noisemakers and wear a costume! We will be collecting donations for the Acton Food Pantry in order to fulfill an important mitzvah of Purim (“matanot l’evyonim”), so please bring a canned good with you. All are welcome.
Mr. Shapiro, a Klezmer and Jazz pianist and accordionist, is a graduate of The New England Conservatory. One of the founding members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band (along with Hankus Netsky, CBE’s 2009 Artist in Residence), he currently leads and plays with several bands, including the “Barry Shapiro Orchestra,” and teaches Israeli dancing.
