Purim at Kol Tzedek
Help bake hamantaschen or volunteer at the party!
We need many hundreds of hamantaschen and So. Many. Volunteers. We can't pull these festivities off without you! From setting up and breaking down the shpil, to face painting, to communal hamantaschen baking, there are so many ways to be a part of Purim. Volunteer here!
Don't see a hamantaschen baking day that works for you? We encourage you to bake a batch or two (or twenty) and bring them to any of the Purim events that you're attending. Many thanks! We can even provide the ingredients. Email Naomi Segal at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
