To learn more about Purim programming and how to get involved follow us on facebook:

Each year (tfu tfu tfu) the Aftselakhis Spectacle Committee (TASC) produces a radical Purimshpil in cahoots with Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ). The process of planning and realizing the Purimshpil is led by TASC in collaboration with JFREJ members, Youth Brigade leaders and staff, as well as a broad range of cultural workers, volunteers and social justice organizations and their members.
