purim hub


The Purim story begins in Shushan (Persia), where Haman, King Ahashverosh’s prime minister, plans to kill all the Jews. Queen Esther and her cousin Mordechai save the day (and the Jews)! On Purim, we read the Megillah (scroll), which contains the Book of Esther.

Today, many people, especially children, dress up in costume and everyone enjoys hamantashen — a  triangle-shaped cookie filled with chocolate, poppy seeds, or fruit filling — which some believe symbolizes Haman’s ears or hat.

We're here for all things Purim! From our downloadable holiday guide to our "all about Purim" video featuring the Rabbis, to our annual Shpiel & Carnival and special Shabbat service, we hope you'll explore this hub and join us to celebrate!
