This year, the festive holiday of Purim begins in the evening of Saturday, March 15 and ends in the evening of Sunday, March 16th. Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia who escaped the wrath of Prime Minister Haman. The holiday honors a brave Queen named Esther, her defiant but dedicated cousin Mordechai, and King Ahasuerus, who protected the Jewish people from Haman. A Purim custom is for children (and adults!) to dress up and disguise themselves—an allusion to the fact that the miracle of Purim was disguised in natural garments. Below is a list of Purim events the whole family can attend. Have fun dressing up and don't forget to pick up some hamantash (a traditional jelly-filled pastry) at your local Kosher bakery!
