Purim Murder Mystery Night

Saturday, February 27, 2021

5 PM: SchZFTY and College-Aged Alumni
7 PM: All Temple
9 PM: All Temple

Team up with CSZ friends and family to solve a chilling mystery and celebrate Purim in a new way!

In a surprising twist of fate, Haman has been hanged from the gallows he built for Mordechai. Was it Queen Esther herself? Was it the King? His butler? There’s only one way to find out who the Hangman is!

In each of our games, participants will work together to find out who hanged Haman. Each session is open for up to 50 attendees, with a maximum of 20 characters per round. Participants interested in acting in our murder mystery should RSVP as a “character,” and those interested in helping to solve this mystery should register as a “detective.”

Registration is first-come, first-served for each time slot, and registration will close if we reach capacity. We recommend that each family member participates on a different device.

Members of SchZFTY and College-Aged Young Alumni are invited to participate in our 5 PM adventure with Havdalah to follow.
