By Reporter staff

The Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton will hold a “March Into Spring Family Get-Together” on Sunday, March 6, at noon, at the Jewish Community Center’s playground and pavilion. (The snow date for the event will be Sunday, March 13.) The event is co-sponsored by the PJ Library program and Hillel Academy, and is open to family members of all ages. There is no charge, but families are asked to register here so they can be contacted if the snow date needs to be used.

There will be activities for children of all ages, including ones focusing on Purim, although the wearing of Purim costumes is optional.. Rabbi Benny Kellman will play his guitar and entertain the younger children. Rabbi Moshe Shmaryahu will also lead an activity. Hillel Academy students will sing a few songs. There will be a service project, where children of all ages can write letters or draw pictures for isolated seniors. Therapy dogs from the Therapy Dogs 607 group will also be in attendance. Refreshments will be served, including hamentashen.

Shelley Hubal, executive director of the Federation, said, “After a long winter, we want to get Jewish families together for a fun celebration. Everyone will be able to enjoy the fresh air, make new friends and celebrate our Jewish roots. We hope you will be able to join us.”
