  • PRESIDENT'S CORNER: April 13, 2017

    Thursday, April 13, 2017

    Holy Holy Holy! This is a big weekend for both Jews and Christians as Passover winds down and Easter makes its way from Good Friday to the return of light on Sunday.  Passover comes about a month after Purim, which is one of the sources of the birth of western theater because of its emphasis on telling the dramatic story of Queen Esther saving the Jewish people from the veil Haman who, basically, wanted to exterminate the Jewish people of Persia! A holiday for feasting and gladness is established by Mordecai and Esther to be celebrated by gift giving, and, in time, the playing of Purim Spiel (plays) to mock, make fun of and generally make merry.
