Africa theme unites Jewish community for Purim

The Chronicle News

Monroe NY — Chabad of Orange County’s annual Purim celebration was an African-themed party offering a way for Jews of diverse backgrounds to celebrate Purim together.

Rabbi Pesach Burston, dressed in authentic African garb, welcomed the crowd of 175 men, woman and children from throughout the county who came to the party on March 4 at the American Legion Hall in Monroe. The evening began with the traditional reading of the Megillah scroll of Esther, which depicts the story of Purim. Simultaneously, participants viewed a multi-media slide show illustrating the historical events of Purim. To drown out the name of the wicked adversary Haman, children enthusiastically jumped on gigantic bubble wrap, shook graggers (noisemakers,) and pounded on African drums.

New York, NY – Taking its queue from Corporate America, the matza baking industry will be following in the footsteps such mammoth corporations as Dell, Microsoft, and American Express.

Matt Saaven, president of the American Matza Bakeries Association (AMBA) explained the reason behind the move. “Due to the annual rise – no pun intended – in the costs of producing shmura matza, we are forced to find ways to lower our costs. Those savings will, in turn, be passed over – again, no pun intended – to our customers.”
