Purim

Purim

The festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot "to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day."The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus holiday observances begin at sunset of the first secular date listed and the holiday concludes at nightfall the following day.
