This past shabbos, snif St. Louis had Shabbat Venahafocu in honor of Purim. We surprised the chanichim with a switch up of the madrichim. The new pairings worked out well and everyone enjoyed the different snif experience!

Chevraya Bet had an amazing Purim casino night! Starting with Megillah reading, then dinner, after that all the high school students got to enjoy casino games and earn raffle tickets to win prizes! It was an amazing event and a great way to spend Purim.

Atlanta’s Parade!

By: Hannah Solon | Mazkira, Atlanta

Purim with Bnei Akiva Atlanta was jam-packed this year! The fun began last Sunday at our Pre-Purim Prep Party where chanichim had a blast making groggers and Mishloach Manot, coloring Megillot, and painting masks. Then, we held our annual Shabbat Zachor Family Shabbaton with over 90 people! (Shout out to Rav James for flying down to help out!) Friday night was filled with Zmirot, ruach, and an amazing family style game of charades. On Shabbos day, we had a great lunch with all the chanichim followed by an incredible Purim Snif! After Shabbos, all our Madrichim spent hours decorating our float for the annual Purim Parade and Carnival! We rented a U-Haul, bought 12 bales of hay, and created an amazing “Kibbutz Bnei Akiva” float which came in 3rd place! BAA Purim fun ended after handing out Mishloach Manot to the community after Megillah reading on Purim day. We can’t wait for Purim next year!
