The "Broadway Purim Shpiel" will feature stars from Les Misérables, Jersey Boys, Talk Radio, "American Idol" and more. Seth Rudetsky (Seth's Broadway Chatterbox, Actors' Fund concerts) will serve as host. The concert will be preceded by a Megillah reading and Purim Lounge at 4:30 PM.

"Taglit-birthright israel provides the gift of first time, peer group, educational trips to Israel for Jewish young adults ages 18 to 26. Taglit-birthright israel's founders created this program to send thousands of young Jewish adults from all over the world to Israel as a gift in order to diminish the growing division between Israel and Jewish communities around the world; to strengthen the sense of solidarity among world Jewry; and to strengthen participants' personal Jewish identity and connection to the Jewish people," states the organization's website.
