    Lubavitchers online are outraged over a recent Purim party hosted by a Lubavitch owned establishment with extensive mingling and at least one female dancer.

    “Arabian Night” took place on Purim eve at Bison and Bourbon in Downtown Brooklyn. A similar event, held last year at the same location, also evoked widespread uproar. Questions remains as to whether, this year, the owners rented the space to outside event organizers in an effort to feign ignorance as to what the event entailed, and thus avoid backlash.

    The event was produced by Mimulo Events of Crown Heights, and was hosted by local merchants such as The Frock NYC, The Chef’s Wife, Rachel Ostroy, and Salon Leah. Music was provided by DJ Roy Baron, and entertainment included a hookah lounge and a henna tattoo artist. The mixed event catered to both marrieds and singles from within the community. Pictures on social media showed bearded Chassidic-looking men watching female dancer[s] in Arabian dress.

    “It’s so ironic,” noted one commenter, “to hold such an event on Purim when the Jews were endangered for attending Achashverosh’s party. The food back then was also glatt kosher…”

    An attendee who preferred to remain anonymous said that friends invited her to a “Purim celebration with good food.” “I couldn’t believe my eyes. The scene was completely lewd. I just got up and left,” she said.

    Foreseeing the outrage from the Chabad community, organizers instructed that attendees share photos on Instagram Story only. This recent Instagram feature allows users to post pictures which are automatically deleted after 24 hours.

    At the time of publishing, the establishment remains under the hechsher of OK Kashrus.
