Purim is a time of year that everyone seems to enjoy. After all, who doesn’t like eating, drinking, and having a good time?

But the true meaning behind this beautiful holiday is sometimes missing. As such, Chazaq’s Jwave Teens Division had several lessons educating local public school students all about the inner meaning of this special holiday, and, of course, the programs had many fun activities, too.

In addition, Chazaq held a special carnival for students of their Afterschool Programs for children. The event took place at Beth Gavriel and attracted students from Chazaq’s Shaping Lives programs that take place weekly at five different locations throughout the Queens community. All in all, hundreds of boys and girls (mostly from public schools) enjoyed the special programs provided by Chazaq.
