Purim (Judaism)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Purim is a Jewish festival that recognizes the deliverance of the Persian Jews from destruction during the reign of King Ahasuerus. This story, recorded in the book of Esther, is read aloud in Synagogues on Purim, and adults and children often wear costumes commemorating the characters. In some traditions, a Purim gragger, or noisemaker, is used whenever Haman's name is mentioned in reading the Megillah, to cover up the name of evil. Families also exchange gifts and eat special foods.
