This year’s Purim was the first one celebrated at the Millennium Center. We were overjoyed to host 300 family members of terror victims from all over the country.
The Millennium Center was filled with excitement and "dressed up" with decorations for the party. Early in the morning, the place was decked with large inflatables, activity booths, a drumming workshop, clowns, music, and food and beverages, all funded by Vision for Israel. We were moved to see the children walking around the booths and activities, playing, eating, and drinking. The younger toddlers enjoyed a play area especially for them. There were plenty of activities, food, and drinks for everyone to enjoy, and the joy was evident on both the children's and adults' faces. We heard them say, "There has never been a Purim event like this before at Vision for Israel.”
Towards the end of the event, a magician surprised the crowd and came up on stage to perform amazing juggling and magic tricks. And of course, no Purim is complete without mishloach manot, the traditional Purim treat bags. Each child received a large package of goodies to take home.
A fun time was had by all, and we look forward to hosting more events like this at the Millennium Center in the future!
