The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU (JMOF-FIU) hosted its annual festive event, A Night at the Museum: A Celebration of the Pageantry of Purim on March 13th. This year, JMOF-FIU guests enjoyed a delightful cocktail reception with delectable hors d'oeuvres, while listening to a string trio of FIU Students. Throughout the evening, partygoers dressed up with masks, hats, feather boas, signs and other props to take fun keepsake photo strips, in the style of the old time photo booths. After cocktails, an elegant three-course dinner was served, with décor featuring centerpieces highlighted with unique artistic masks, and party favors of feathered masks and groggers (noisemakers). Everyone found opportunities to meet and mingle with new and long-time friends, as they capped off the evening together with the sweetness of the traditional Purim hamentaschen cookies.
