Friendship Circle Celebrates Purim In The Ballpark

Purim at the ballpark

On Sunday, February 24, Friendship Circle hosted a Family Purim Party for participants of Friendship Circle. The party called “Purim In The Ballpark” saw participants dressed up in baseball uniforms and other costumes.

Parents and Children were able to participate in a number of Purim activities including listening to the Megillah, making Hamentashen and decorating special Purim “baseball” cards.
Special sports activities included  blow up baseball, bouncy castles, cotton candy and more. A special guest appearance was made by PAWS, the Detroit Tigers mascot.

Purim celebrates the salvation of the Jewish people, in the year 356 bce, from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.” To celebrate this day, we read the megillah, give gifts of food to one another and dress up in costumes.
