The morning began with a good old-fashioned Purim shpiel, produced and directed by Cantorial Soloist Jacki Rawiszer. Parents and other members of the congregation took part in The Megillah Ac- cording to Broadway - Abridged. When the children had finished booing for Haman and cheering for a lovely Esther, it was time to move the action outside for fun, games, and food. Many children worked off their extra energy by taking part in the potato sack races. According to one parent, "the potato sack race was the most popular game at the carni- val."

The Friends of the Jewish Chapel and the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation made the gift jointly to the Naval Academy, representing the first installment toward con- struction of The Commodore Uriah P. Levy Center and Jew- ish Chapel. The gift is the first of several, which will provide for programs, a maintenance endowment and other ser- vices.

It has also raised more than $10 mil- lion to build, maintain, and provide a program endowment for the Levy Center and Jew- ish Chapel. The FOJC has raised these private funds in collaboration with the Naval Academy Foun- dation as part of its Leaders to Serve the Nation Campaign. The facility will be built on the grounds of the academy, on the east side of Mitscher Hall facing Farragut Field.
