The DJJ Purim spiel is a punchy and passionate short play written and put on by members of our grassroots community. As we wear costumes to amp up the absurdity, dance, & nosh hamentaschen (eat little triangle-shaped cookies representing fertility, & in our analysis femme power), we DJJ - Do Justice Jewishly.
Wear a costume for our costume contest and bring your friends of all ages!

"What's a Purim?"
Mazel Tov ("congratulations")! If you're asking, this means you're on the cusp of spending your first Purim with DJJ! Purim is a Jewish holiday which derives from a story. DJJ leaders Roz Schindler and Jake Ehrlich collaborated on a blog to explain. The video below is from 2017's Purim festivities, created by Natasha Tamate Weiss.
