NORTHFIELD – The Children's Choir of Beth Israel Synagogue put on a Purim 'spiel' or play Sunday, March 12 that was a parody of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast." The original production, written by Cantor Larisa Averbakh, featured songs to celebrate the holiday of Purim, where Queen Esther saves her fellow Jews from certain destruction.

Following the spiel, families enjoyed a Purim carnival where children played games and won prizes.
