7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center (ERJCC) is hosting a Virtual Vashti Banquet, a three-day program leading up to Purim. Vashti's Virtual Banquet will recreate the fabled harem of Vashti's banquet in the Purim story over the course of three nights, celebrating the power of strong women through learning, literature, food and music.

On the third night of the program, Cantor Rollin Simmons will be joined by Beth Israel’s Cantor Star Trompeter to kick off the evening with a live pre-show of Purim music followed by a concert with acclaimed Sephardic Ladino singer Nani.

Tickets to the event may include Middle Eastern fare as well as temporary tattoos, to invoke the henna tattoos traditionally worn on this festive occasion. Participants may register for one, two, or all three events during the series.

As of press time, the ERJCC was still finalizing details of this program. More details will be shared in synagogue communications closer to the event and registration will be done through the ERJCC at erjcchouston.org.
