HMI is more than a trip, it’s about the journey. And your Jewish journey continues at home – whether in your community, with your HMI cohort, or at home with your partner. From Shabbat to other Jewish holidays, life-stage based programs and neighborhood meet-ups, our programs help you explore Jewish life with your Honeymoon Israel family.

HMI Chicago: Purim Party for Families with Kids (Virtual)

March 13, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am CDT

Do your kids like cookies? Do they like dressing up in silly costumes? Do they like singing, dancing, and hearing amazing stories? Join HMI Chicago for a rowdy, messy, and joyful Purim celebration led by THREE wildly talented HMI Chicago alumni!

Together, we will:

  • Bake yummy hamantaschen (triangular filled-pocket pastry) with Dylan Maysick, HMI Chicago Cohort 5 alum and Diaspora Dinners chef
  • Learn about the Jewish holiday of Purim, sing, and dance with live music by Jewish children’s educator, Amy Schaeffer, HMI Chicago Cohort 5 alum
  • Enjoy a live reading of My Happy Hamantaschen by Jewish children’s author, Arianna Brooks, HMI Chicago Cohort 4 alum
  • Get ready to get down, ancient Persian style, with a generous sprinkle of HMI magic! This event has something for children of all ages and will be super interactive.

And as a special bonus: all families will receive a FREE copy of Arianna’s newest board book, My Happy Hamantaschen! Please RSVP by March 1 to get your free copy of the book.
