Shugar and Schmooze Celebrates the return of spring with JOY as a spiritual choice!

Come share in the delights of the season as we celebrate the Maple Trees and the Jewish holiday of Purim where silliness, joy, and fun frolic in the woods!  Its a time of merry making, giving gifts to friends, and feeding the poor!
