Congregation Am Tikva’s Persian Purim Costume Dinner

Congregation Am Tikva, or “CAT”, is the GLBT synagogue of Boston and where I’m a member.

Tonight we celebrated Purim (rather like the Jewish Halloween, at least here in the States) by having a Costume Dinner at Molana, the Persian restaurant in Watertown. I’d never been to Molana (and I don't think I'd been to another Persian restaurant, or had much Persian cuisine) and want to return – we had an excellent experience.

Alas, many of the guests weren't able to attend due to last minute conflicts. But that turned out to mean we had a perfect intimate group, and were able to all be part of one conversation. And the costumes were wonderful – a Queen Vashti, two Queen Esthers (all three very different), an explorer (complete with pith helmet), and our Indian Muslim member in native dress of his own design and making. I wore my anime (Japanese animation) cat ears.

I took some photos of us with my cell phone, and will figure out how to put those online asap...
