The Rancho Santa Fe Jewish community gathered March 4 to celebrate the holiday of Purim in style at an event, “Purim: A Royal Affair,” presented by the Chabad Jewish Center of Rancho Santa Fe. The Grand Ballroom of the Morgan Run Resort and Club was transformed into a royal palace, all were welcomed by a very regal King Achashveirosh and Queen Esther. A royal masquerade of children in Purim costume was led on the red carpet by the RSF Bar Mitzvah club. Gragger Sounds were heard as the Megillah — the story of Purim — was read aloud in its ancient scroll and tongue.
Young and old, enjoyed the lavish dinner and triangular Purim treats, called Hamantashen.
The event concluded with royal entertainment — a magnificent hypnotist show.
