The bags are free, but reservations are required no later than February 16, 2021, so we know how many to prepare. Then come out to the CSZ campus. You’ll stay safe in your car and wave to our costumed clergy as they put the bags in your vehicle! Masks are a MUST but are also encouraged to get into the Purim spirit.
