Jewish Academy of Orlando students celebrate Purim


On Thursday, March 5, the students spent the afternoon participating in Purim activities, which included face-painting, games, dancing and making masks for the holiday. The students also participated in the reading of the Megillah and ate delicious hamantaschen. The teachers put on a little Purim Spiel, which was a called, "Purim, Dress You Up," a parody of the pop song by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson called "Uptown, Funk You Up!" "It was really a lot of fun!" said Head of School Alan Rusonik.

Earlier in the day, the kindergarten students performed Purim songs and a little Purim play at Savannah Court for the residents. Finally, the students participated in the mitzvah of "Mishloach Manot" giving Purim gifts to friends and loved ones.

Teachers, staff and students at the Jewish Academy of Orlando know how to party and Purim brings out the best in the students, teachers and the school.
