Chaya Mushkah Greenberg, 1, reaches for the party hat on her father, Rabbi Mendy Greenberg of Bonita Springs, before he begins the celebration of the Jewish holiday Purim at the Bonita Springs Community Center on Tuesday evening. According to the rabbi, Purim is the happiest day on the Jewish calendar. He likened it to Mardi Gras in that costumes and party attire are encouraged. The holiday recognizes the time in history that Jews were saved from annihilation, when their world was “turned upside down,” he said. Tuesday evening’s celebration featured the musical duo “Fiddlers off of the Roof” from New York made up of Eli Stiefel, far right, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Avraham Chazanow of Manalapaw, N.J.
