On Thursday, Mar. 9, 2017, the 14th Street Y will host its 2017 PURIM Gala at the Angel Orensanz Foundation — located at 172 Norfolk Street — with cocktails at 6:00 PM and dinner and entertainment slated to kick off at 7:00 PM.

Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. Celebrated with feasts, drink and revelry, it celebrates standing up for what you believe in and calls us to honor others through giving gifts and charity.

The 14th Street Y 2017 PURIM Gala will feature one-of-a kind live art and performances: Purim, as told by acclaimed acrobatics company Cirque-tacular, a special performance by children from the 14th Street Y After School, live music by the Bridget Robbins Trio, body art by Sheila Jordan and more. Specialty food and drink will be offered, including aerial silks-acrobat champagne service; a Purim cocktail designed by The Surf Lodge’s own mixologist; sweet treats from Dylan’s Candy Bar and custom hamantashen and other baked goods by noted Manhattan and Brooklyn bakeries Colson Patisserie, Mah Ze Dahr Bakery, Orwashers and Zucker Bakery. The event will also feature exclusive artwork from the 14th Street Y’s innovative arts fellowship program LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture, children in the 14th Street Y’s early childhood programs and more. Festive Attire is encouraged.
