re: to answer your question

We got a lot of people asking. Yes, the Purim parties including the ComedySportz show is for everyone! On Thursday, we begin with a carnival for kids at 5:30 pm. Megillah for everyone at 6:30 followed by a lavish Purim feast, Open Bar and both shows. At the same time as the comedy show, there will be a simultaneous children's clown show. Young Professionals are invited to stay after the show for an exclusive afterparty with the actors. So.... if you are a teen, under age 21, family with kids or above age 40, RSVP here: www.chabaduptown.org/purimschedule. If you are a young professional ages 21-39, RSVP here: www.yjphouston.org/events/comedy. Hope that clears that up! :) 

See below for the complete Purim schedule with readings around the clock

PARSHAT ZACHOR: This being the Shabbat before Purim, on which we celebrate the foiling of Haman the Amalekite's plot to destroy the Jewish people, the weekly Parshah is supplemented with the Zachor reading (Deuteronomy 25:17-19) in which we are commanded to remember the evil of Amalek and to eradicate it from the face of the earth. "Parshat Zachor" is the second of four special readings added during or immediately before the month of Adar (the other three being "Shekalim", "Parah" and "Hachodesh") Links: The Zachor Reading with commentary, More on Who Was Amalek?

Double the Fun!

  • DOUBLE SHABBAT! Last Shabbat, Chabad of Uptown's cteen joined teens from around the world with 2600 participants from 6 continents, 400 cities, 30 countries - the largest yet! You can watch CTeen take over Times Square on Saturday night with Havdalla and concert at www.chabaduptown.org/cteenlive.

    This Shabbat, YJP Houston is in NYC!! Chanie is leading a group of Houston delegates with reps also from around the world!

    First Fridays will therefore be held on the first Friday of Adar, "Souper Shabbat" featuring a variety of hearty soups, salads and more with other Young Jewish Professionals over Shabbat Dinner! www.yjphouston.org/events/soupershabbat

  • DOUBLE THE STUDY! Did you know we offer two classes every Thursday? At the Thursday noon class we have learned subjects in many stages, beginning with the study of the applied Parsha, the entire book of Tanya, five selected Chassidic discourse of the Rebbe and most recently three chapters of different areas of Talmud discussing the financial obligation of neighboring condominiums, Shabbos cooking and Grace after Meals. The class will now focus on another area of Torah, halacha. We will start from the beginning of Shulchan Aruch Harav, Chapter 1. Join us!

  • DOUBLE TORAH ALERT! This Shabbat os "Parshat Shekalim" is the first of four special readings added during or immediately before the month of Adar. When the Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, each Jew contributed an annual half-shekel to the Temple. The 1st of Adar marked the beginning of the collection of the shekalim. In commemoration, the Torah reading of the Shabbat that falls on or before Adar 1 is supplemented with the verses (Exodus 30:11-16) that relate G-d's commandment to Moses regarding the first giving of the half-shekel.Links: The Shekalim Reading with commentaryPartnerTzedakah: Charity
     
  • DOUBLE ADAR! It is also Shabbos Mevarchim for Rosh Chodesh Adar! We will have our monthly breakfast on Thursday! See schedule below!
     
  • DOUBLE THE FUN! Look out in your mailboxes for Purim for the community of all ages and Young Professionals, including megillah readings around the clock!
