Boston Purim Party Warns Wheelchair Users Against Attending

Each Purim, Boston Workmen’s Circle Center for Jewish Culture and Social Justice charges its young adult leaders – a group of 20- or 30-something Jews involved in progressive activism– with planning and organizing a community Purim party. The event, called Gragger (Noisemaker), is described as “wild and raucous” and a “rowdy call for justice and joy.” Featuring homemade hamantaschen, a costume contest, “rad” political theatre, live music and a DJ, the event seems to have everything that one could ask for – except for a wheelchair-accessible venue.
