Think, "Queen Esther, Mordechai, hamantaschen and Haman," and what do you get? Why, you get the Jewish holiday of Purim!
Now to help celebrate Purim in grand style, The Jewish Museum is having its Purim Ball 2013. This masked ball will be held on February 27, 2013 at Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue, New York, NY and cocktails will begin at 7 p.m.
Now The Jewish Museum is one of the world's largest and most important institutions devoted to exploring and preserving the Jewish culture! It was founded in 1904 in the library of The Jewish Theological Seminary of America where it stayed for four decades. Then in l944, Frieda Schiff Warburg (widow of businessman and philanthropist, Felix Warburg) who at that time served as a Seminary trustee, donated the family mansion at 1109 Fifth Avenue at 92nd Street to become what is now known as The Jewish Museum!
So for nearly a century now, The Jewish Museum has shown us both the secular and religious sides of the Jewish experience. In addition, it has also demonstrated the strength of the Jewish identity and culture and has served as the source of education, inspiration and shared values for all people of all cultures!
