[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 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.
