Saddle up your party horse and enjoy Kosher buffalo wings in cowboy gear at this year’s Purim celebration at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 23 at 234 St. Joe Plaza Dr.

“Purim in the Wild West” is Chabad of Palm Coast creative twist to this year’s community celebration of Purim. The holiday commemorates the Jewish people’s salvation in Persia of old.

Billed as the most joyous date on the Jewish calendar, Chabad’s original spin on this age-old holiday has helped bring the spirit of Purim to Palm Coast year after year.

"Purim in the Wild West will combine ancient Jewish traditions with a modern twist," Director of Chabad of Palm Coast Rabbi Levi Ezagui said. "We focus on doing interesting and innovative programs, yet still keeping with the holiday theme."

The event is a community-wide program, and all are welcome to join, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background. There will be crafts for the children, a buffet dinner, Jewish country music, and more.

"The event is focused primarily on spirit, fun, and tradition,” organizer Tzivie Ezagui said.

In the spirit of Purim, participants are encouraged to come in costume, and there will be a competition for the most innovative or funny entries.

Cost is $10 per adult and $5 per child. For more information, contact Chabad of Palm Coast at 225-4941, or online at www.Chabadpalmcoast.com.
