Queen for a day: Purim, the story of Queen Esther

Everyone is welcome to join the Lake Chapala Jewish Congregation for a hilarious enactment of the Purim story and a delicious vegetarian dinner on Wednesday, March 20, 4 p.m.

The Purim story is full of drama. It brings together a mighty king, a jealous scoundrel, and a wise uncle. However, at its center is a clever heroine who was so beautiful she was known as the Morning Star. This dramatic story shows how it was only because of Queen Esther’s cunning and courage that evil was brought to justice and many threatened lives were saved. Told for many thousands of years, her story is still thrilling and inspiring.


The Jewish Congregation is located in Riberas del Pilar, at Santa Maria 113.  Cost is 200 for members, 300 for non-member guests. There are prizes for all who attend in costume.  Advance tickets required.  Purchase tickets at Diane Pearl in Ajijic.  For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
