Purim, Conejo Valley-style

A celebration
of costumes and games

A JOYFUL TIME—Above, Rabbi Moshe Bryski, center, visits with his grandson, Meir Kahanov of Agoura Hills, during Chabad of the Conejo’s Mexican-style Purim Festival on March 1. Attendees were encouraged to dress in Mexican clothes. At right, Laurie Street helps her 5-year-old granddaughter Hannah Kryger of Agoura Hills with her hat. Purim is the annual holiday marking a time in ancient Persia when the Jewish people overturned a royal edict designed to wipe them out. The event is recalled in the Book of Esther.
