Congregation Beth Israel’s March 8 Purim celebration includes a tribute to one of Disney’s great musicals followed by a carnival featuring live acrobats, refreshments, games and more. The Purim fun, which is open to the public, kicks off at 10:30 a.m. at the synagogue at 701 Farmington Ave. in West Hartford.

The Purim Shpiel, “The Zion King,” is a tribute to Disney’s hit musical, “The Lion King,” and is being directed by CBI’s Cantor Stephanie Kupfer, with members of the congregation performing.

Congregation Beth Israel is a Reform Jewish synagogue of over 700 families, tracing its history to 1843, when Jews were first given the legal right to establish a synagogue in the state of Connecticut. Today, Congregation Beth Israel is a welcoming community where people of all ages and backgrounds can deepen their spirituality and engagement in the world through prayer, celebration, learning, and efforts to repair the world.
