The Migdal Chapter of Hadassah at North Shore Towers (NST) recently put on a special Chanukah play.

Called a “spiel,” the play drew in a standing-room only crowd in the Coleridge Lounge on December 22. It was written and directed by Carolyn Dinofsky, chapter president, and comically combined elements of Jewish history and NST parody.

The cast — garbed in costumes — included both female and male members of the chapter.

According to Hadassah members, the highlight of the night was when Eneas Arkawy, chapter board member, stole the show by spiritedly impersonating the well-known, blonde and fashionable NST realtor Linda Rappaport.
