Purim

[Pu-REEM]- is the Feast of the Annulment of the Lots, and is observed on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar (Feb.-Mar.). This is a celebration of the deliverance of the Persian Jews over one of the most dastardly plots to exterminate the Jewish people. The book of Esther in the TaNaKh [OT] tells the story of how the beautiful Hadassah [Esther] and her cousin Mordechai [mor-de-KHAI] thwart the evil Haman [hah-MAHN], who plots to massacre the Jews.

It is tradition to dress in costume for this celebration.

Purim 2023 will fall on the evening March 6th and ends on the evening of March 7th.
