Purim

Purim at NSTE

The festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (or Adar II). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot destroy the Jews as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).

During Purim, we let our hair down. We listen to the reading of the Megillah, dress up in fancy dress, eat hamantaschen and enjoy each other's company. The whole congregation joins in on the fun! 

Details of events, activities and services will be available closer to Purim in 2024
