Purim (2).png

The festival of Purim commemorates the Divinely orchestrated salvation of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.”

It is celebrated with Megillah readings, gifts of food, charity, feasting, and merriment. Read more about Purim here.
