Temple Oheb Shalom held a fun and jovial celebration for the holiday of Purim 2014.

Rabbis, cantor, executive director, staffers, congregants and friends all did a great job portraying the key figures involved with this ancient Purim holiday, celebrated in all synagogues/temples.

The invitation to this event was themed, "Temple Oheb Shalom HOEDOWN."

After a humorous "Purim Shpiel" titled, "The Megillah Goes Nashville" - everyone appropriately dressed Nashville style - representing key figures in the Purim story was a resounding success! Everyone enjoyed this humorous rendition commemorating this holiday.

Cast included: Rabbi Scott Nagel, King Ahasuerus; Cantor Renata Braun, Queen Esther; Rabbi Steven Fink, Uncle Mordecai; Executive Director, Ken Davidson, wicked Haman; Sally Fink, Queen Vashti.

In addition to all of the above listed, also doing great jobs were Anna Goldseker, director; Monique Gertner, choreographer; Maxine Lowy narrated this fun spoof presentation; Paul Binko was the accompanist.

Following the above Purim Shpiel, was a tasty barbeque dinner. Naturally, a variety of tasty Hamantaschen served as the dessert!

Square dancing topped off the the festivities of the evening.

Thank you to all the good sports involved with making the Purim Shpiel, "The Megillah Goes Nashville" authentic, enjoyable and a mega success!

Thank you also Ken Davidson and Caren Levin for keeping this columnist updated.
