Your guide to what's happening in Jewish Rhode Island between Purim and Passover.
March 2 - April 22, 2014 Brought to you by the Synagogue Initiative of the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island.
Welcome to our first Purim to Passover Guide—here you'll find many of the events going on in the Greater Rhode Island Jewish community taking place between March 2 - April 22. This guide came about based on community feedback after our eight-day Israel @ Sixty-Five celebration. We received overwhelming response asking for a
comprehensive listing of events at different times throughout the year. The Jewish Alliance reached out to all Jewish agencies and synagogues in the area asking them to submit events that are open to the community regardless of synagogue affiliation.
To make the guide easier to follow we've created icons: • the Grogger icon will be used to indicate Purim related events;• the Seder Plate icon will signify Passover related events.
Events without icons are general events taking place between Purim and Passover.
