Purim Simcha 2023

Purim Megillah Read-A-Thon 2023


As the only kosher and shomer Shabbat domestic violence shelter in all of Canada, Auberge Shalom has provided exemplary support to Montreal women in need for more than three decades. As we know, the pandemic increased the incidence of violence against women and stretched resources. 

The Shaare Zion Beth-El Sisterhood is proud to continue our unique Purim fund-raising event for the fifth year to support the Auberge – the Megillah Read-A-Thon.

Ten congregants will each read a portion of the Megillah Esther, on Zoom, on Shushan Purim, March 8. Readers are sponsored by personal donors, much like the sponsorship for a Walk-a-Thon. 

The Megillah Read-A-Thon 2023 goal is $10,000.

Two-thirds will go to Auberge Shalom to support the 2023-24 program of Shabbat meals and holiday meals. Food donations have dropped significantly since the pandemic and our gift helps support the celebration of Jewish life and holidays so crucial to the identity of the Auberge.

One-third will stay with Sisterhood to support a synagogue project.  In 2022, the SZ portion was donated to Ukraine relief through Federation CJA.

To sponsor a reader or to donate to the overall event, [link coming soon} or call Seth Rosen at 514 481-7727 ext 223

Minimum donation $18 with a full tax receipt.

And, please join us on Zoom for the fun-filled reading on Wednesday, March 8, at 5:00 pm.

Costumes not required, but masks and graggers will set the tone.
