IKG celebrated Purim with 400 children at the Stadttempel in Vienna

Approximately 400 children, accompanied by their parents, joined in the joyful commemoration of the historic rescue of the Jewish people from the hands of Haman during a Purim celebration organised by the Jewish Community of Vienna (IKG) and Bnei Akiva at the Stadttempel.

Before the Purim celebrations started, a mask contest sparked creativity among the children. From a multitude of entries, four top prizes were drawn and presented by IKG Oskar President Deutsch and Vice President Claudia Prutscher.

Preceding the Megillah reading at the Stadttempel, children came together to create raashanim and masks. Israeli singer Daniel Yehudah infused the atmosphere with energy, encouraging the children to sing and dance with enthusiasm. A photo booth provided a platform for lighthearted and imaginative snapshots.

The grand Megillah reading at the Stadttempel was led by MMag Thomas Gross, accompanied by sirens and an engaging picture presentation. Chief Cantor Shmuel Barzilai and singer Daniel Yehudah provided musical accompaniment, enhancing the experience for all attendees.
