Purim Drag Story Hour at the Boston Jewish Community Center

Happy Purim to readers who practice Jewcraft. If you’re in Maskachusetts, you might wish to attend the Boston Jewish Community Center’s Purim Drag Story Hour, organized with the PJ Library, a free book-of-the-month-club for children (heavy on stories about women achieving the unthinkable by doing something that dozens if not thousands of men previously did).

What actually happens?

Join the JCC and OUT MetroWest to celebrate the joy of Purim with a Drag Story Hour! Grab a costume and enjoy Purim-themed stories, crafts, and, of course, Hamentaschen! Introduce kids to glamorous, bold, and unabashedly queer role models, while sharing love and acceptance through storytelling.

If we hadn’t moved to Florida, I would be there. I would dress up as Queen Esther every day in exchange for a plate of poppy seed hamantaschen (note that the “queer role models” may not be role models for conventional transliteration because they’ve spelled “Haman” with an “e”) . My motto: Don’t stop eating them until you test positive for opioid abuse! (thus combining the ancient Hebrew tradition with the modern American one)

    • It appears from the post that the 2SLGBTQQIA+ folx are taking over the Jews, probably with the goal of ultimately controlling Hollywood!!! Soon non-binary stars will be in every movie and not just a phrase from astronomy text books. Hurray for the future!

  1. Had you been in Bethesda, you could have been here in Olney, MD (which if you do actually make the trek over from GAI, Thai food on me!)

    MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (DC News Now) — Montgomery County Public Libraries and the Montgomery County Department of Police said they were alerted to a potential threat to a Drag Story Hour event.

    Two events are set to take place on Feb. 25 and 26. One will be at the Olney Public Library and the other at Crazy Aunt Helen’s

  2. Since this happening brings the Jewish and 2SLGBTQQIA+ religions together, does it qualify as an ecumenical event?
