Purim Carnival at Binghamton University

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The annual Binghamton University Purim Carnival Extravaganza is to be held tonight in the Events Center on the Vestal campus.

The carnival is a project of the Chabad Center for Jewish Student Life, which coordinates the event with Binghamton University organizations and residential communities.

Rabbi Levi Slonim, director of programming and development for the Chabad Center, says community members of all ages are welcome to participate in the carnival events.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Slonim said the holiday of Purim is the most joyous day on the Jewish calendar. He said it’s “a day of rejoicing and celebrating.”

Slonim notes the actual holiday this year begins at sundown Saturday and ends Sunday night.

The campus Purim Carnival has been held for more than two decades.

Slonim said there’ll be a variety of events with rides, attractions, contests and more.

The carnival is scheduled to run from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. in the Events Center. Parking will be available for the public. There’s a $3 admission fee.

More information about the event may be found at JewishBU.com/Purim2013.
