Purim is the Jewish holiday where we get so wild that we no longer can tell the difference between Queen Esther and her Uncle Mordechai...sounds pretty queer to us! So what better place to celebrate the holiday than at the LGBTQ Purim Ball – celebrating 12 years!


The entire Jewish community (ages 21+) are welcome. Want to bring your straight friends or not LGBTQ yourself? Not to worry, we are STRAIGHT FRIENDLY, so come down and party with us!


Come as yourself, come as someone else, everybody is welcome.

There is no age maximum, you are never too old to party (you must be 21 to enter).

Costumes optional but recommended.


Did we mention that there is an OPEN BAR, Drag DJ and an endless supply of Hamantaschen?

Music by DJ Mad Madame M (Playing Madonna & Mariah to Mordechai Ben David!)
