Purim

What is Purim?

The jolly festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).

During Purim, we listen to the reading of the Megillah, dress up in fancy dress, eat hamentaschen, and enjoy many laughs.  

Stay tuned for details about Purim 2020.
