Esther Fest

A Purim Celebration of Mizrahi Women
Location: Echo Park
Date/Time: Thursday 3/17 | 7:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

Through art, stories, song, and the magic of one another, join Nefesh and NuRoots for a joyous, interactive Purim celebration!
Special guests Hadar Cohen and Rachel Sumekh will bring Esther’s story as a Persian and Mizrahi woman to life, honoring the legacies of descendants from Jewish communities across the Middle East and North Africa. We will then head into a raucous Megillah reading and connect more as a community over delicious Mizrahi food and drinks (boozy and not).
This event is open to all!

The Y&S Nazarian Initiative of L.A.’s Jewish Federation and NuRoots honors and celebrates Iranian heritage and culture.
