  • This event has passed.

Grab your bell-bottoms and get ready for a Purim unlike any other! We’ve traveled back to the ’60s, had a hoedown, and saved the planet with superheroes; now we’re lighting up the disco ball, and mama mia is it going to be an event. Knowing me, knowing you, you’ll take a chance and be a dancing queen – that’s the name of the game!

Best of all, we’re having a flashback to the roller rinks of the 1970s, complete with all your snack bar favorites.

Don’t have skates? Don’t worry, we’ll have plenty on hand so you can crossover, spin, and shoot the duck to your heart’s content.
