Thursday, Purim day, the celebrations continued in the Marina Roscha shul and community center, and tens of other locations across Moscow. Minyonim for shacharis and Megillah were held in Marina Roscha every hour on the hour from the early morning, and chassidim and bochurim spread out to numerous locations to bring the joy of Purim to others.
