Black Tie International:
The 14th Street Y 2018 Annual Purim Gala

Honoring Harvey Schulweis
Thursday, March 1, 2018
6pm Cocktails, 7pm Dinner & Entertainment
Cipriani, 25 Broadway, NYC
New York, NY - On Thursday, March 1, 2018 beginning at 6pm, the 14th Street Y will host its 2018 PURIM Gala. The 14th Street Y will honor founding Board Member and philanthropist Harvey Schulweis.
The 14th Street Y is a vibrant community center grounded in the belief that contemporary Jewish sensibilities can be a source of inspiration, connection, and learning for the individuals and families we serve throughout New York City's East Village and beyond.
The Gala will be held at Cipriani, 25 Broadway, NYC, with Cocktails at 6pm and Dinner & Entertainment at 7pm. Festive attire and masks are encouraged. To learn more about the night's events, get tickets, or to make a donation, please visit
Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar. Celebrated with feasts, drink and revelry, it celebrates standing up for what you believe in and calls us to honor others through giving gifts and charity. 
In keeping with the time-honored Purim tradition of masquerade, guests are invited to indulge in wearing Purim-inspired masks and accessories. Try on a bit of whimsy, drama or intrigue and be transformed instantly... go on, we dare you!  
The 14th Street Y 2018 PURIM Gala will feature one-of-a kind live art and performances: 
Featured Performance:
The Story of Purim, as told by Cirque-tacular 
In this breathtaking circus-arts interpretation of a key piece of the Purim Megillah (scroll), Esther, the Jewish queen, builds up the courage to approach her easily-offended and power hungry husband, the Persian King Achashverosh, in order to protect the Jewish people from the genocidal plans of the King's most trusted advisor, the evil Haman. Watch in awe as an acrobatic Esther takes the fate of the Jewish People into her hands.

The night's performance of The Story of Purim is produced by Cirque-tacular Entertainment, the East Coast's premiere specialty and acrobatic production company. Through thousands of performances in the past ten years, their work has been enjoyed in more than 70 countries, by millions live, in conjunction with the most recognized brands, venues, and arts organizations of our age. Their touring shows, including Art of Circus and Snowkus Pocus, which played at the 14th Street Y's theater last season, are available on-demand year round from one-night at roadhouses to runs at PACs. The Acrobats of Cirque-tacular are thrilled to join the 14th Street Y once again for the Gala. 
SHA'AR will kick off the evening with sounds to inspire and intrigue. SHA'ARexplores the various Jewish musical traditions of its members, and uses these traditions to inform the compositions played by the group in an attempt to create a musical language that is coherent and unique to the group, informed by jazz and global music, and DJ Rabbi Darkside will return this year to turn up the volume and create an experience full of revelry.
Harvey Schulweis is President of Schulweis Realty, Inc., a real estate investment and asset management company in New York City.  Before founding Schulweis Realty, Mr. Schulweis was Chairman and Chief Executive of The Town and Country Trust, a publicly traded real estate investment trust from 1991-2006.  From 1978 through 1990, he was a General Partner of Lazard Frères & Co. and President of Lazard Realty, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary. Mr. Schulweis is active in a number of philanthropic and professional organizations.  In addition to serving as the Chairman of The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous for the past thirty years, he is currently a board member of the Baruch College Fund and serves as chairman of its real estate committee, Chairman Emeritus of the 14th Street Y and is a Vice-President, member of the Board and of the Executive Committee of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
