Mishenichnas Adar - Marbim BeSimcha!
Posted: March 15
Why celebrate Purim for only one day when Adar offers so many days that can be filled with costumes and real fun? At Midreshet HaRova, students of the class of 5777 took advantage of all the opportunities to enjoy the simcha of Adar, from dressing up as staff, as biblical animals, or Bait Yaakov students in the days leading up to Purim, to enjoying the Rovadin coffee shop madrichot created. Shabbat Zachor with Rav Berg is an annual celebration, and this year Atara Starr and family joined as well.
Purim in Jerusalem offers the unique opportunity to celebrate both the 14th of Adar, Purim D’Prazot, and Shushan Purim on the 15th of Adar. On the evening of the 14th of Adar, students had the option to visit Rav Milston for a festive tish at his home in Alon Shvut and on the day of the 14th, to volunteer in various sites throughout Jerusalem. From visiting the elderly or handicapped, to packaging food for the needy or delivering mishloah manot to Holocaust survivors, our students Purim cheer really shone through.
In the evening, on Shushan Purim, students shouted down Haman at megillah reading in the Beit Midrash, followed by the celebratory Midreshet HaRova wedding celebration and party. The seuda with rabbanim and staff followed megillah in the morning.
