Mandy Garver, assitant director,
with Joe Lewis.

`Jeremy' have the hand of
my daughter. I don't know
who she is." (Alas, the
daughter has no name in
this drama).
While his part is critical, it
does not last the entire
drama, Scott said. "I'm not
in the play anymore after I
get run over by boots."
The character of Jeremy
was played by 9-year-old
Brent Pliskow, who says of
his role, "I sing a lot to the
lady I love."
"The lady you love!" a
little girl laughs.
"I wanted to be Haman,"
Brent admitted.
Jennifer Levine, 10, was
pleased with her part,
minute though it was. As
Vashti, "my only line is
`no, " she said.
The stage was filled with
talent, but 4-year-old Lia
Wolok had no question as to
her favorite performers. As
she waited in the audience,
she drew pictures with
crayons and watched the
story unfold, paying special
attention to her sisters, Jana
and Rachel.
She gave the play rave re-
views, except at one par-
ticularly scary part when,
Lia said, "I hided under the
table."
Just around the corner
from Beth Shalom, Young
Israel of Oak-Woods was fill-
ed with Purim excitement
last Saturday night and
Sunday morning.
Twins Devorah Leah and
Bracha Alta Cohen, 5, car-
ried Megillot Esther they
had made at school.
Dressed as Mordechai in
tzitzit and a multicolored
kippah, Devorah Leah said
the best thing about Purim
is giving shalach manot.
"I like the fun stuff," she
said of the holiday. "I made
shalach manot for my
friends and teachers. I put in
a candy cane and chocolate

with peanut butter inside
and also lollipops.
"Then some stuff we ran
out of so we got some more.
Shall I tell you?"
The extra goodies were
licorice and raisins, she said.
Bracha Alta Cohen chose a
less traditional Purim outfit
than her sister. No Esthers
or Mordechais would do for
Bracha Alta: she opted for
long, plastic monster hands
with black nails, a plastic
dog nose and a tousled grey
wig.
Eleven-year-old Deena
Kresch also enjoys shalach
manot, though she admits
she and her parents have
slightly different ideas as to
what makes a good treat.
"My parents put fruit in
their shalach manot," she
.said. "I just put candy in
mine."
Dani Ungar, 8, said the
best part of Purim is
"getting dressed up and get-
ting candy." This year, Dani
came as Minnie Mouse with
pink tights.
"My mother got them," he
said of the tights. "Really,

she got them for my sister.
But they were a size too big
for her."
Sunday afternoons are
supposed to be lazy and dull.
But neither of those words
applied to the big Purim
carnival at Temple Israel.
The social hall was filled
with games and contests and
prizes. Bright flags hung
from the ceiling and a huge
moon walk took center
stage. Boys and girls played
putt putt and shuffle board
and basketball.
Temple workers manning
the games wore "Haman
buster" T-shirts, with a
large red stripe across
Haman's face, reminiscent
of the "Ghostbuster" logo.
At 3:15 p.m. the big
costume contest began. They
came as Raggedy Ann and
Esther, as kings and as
queens. They were young,
and they were even younger
— a baby was dressed as a
dainty prince§s.
As parents encouraged
their children — "You look
great! You look great!" —
the judges assured con-
