Like an old-school mic check, the gragger is a Jewish noisemaker traditionally used to lift up our voices in the name of liberation and justice. On Saturday, March 11th, Boston Workmen's Circle is hosting its 10th annual raucous, radical Purim extravaganza, featuring DJ Lady SpindriftSecond Line Brass Band, and a radical retelling of the Purim Story (Purim Shpiel) based on social justice issues today
Gragger is a chance to dress in costume, dance the night away, and celebrate your favorite Biblical feminists!
