We celebrate Purim, a vibrant Jewish holiday observed on the 14th and 15th days of Adar. It commemorates the story of Queen Esther and Mordecai, who foiled Haman's wicked plot to annihilate the Jewish people in ancient Persia. Purim is a time of joyous festivities, where we read the Book of Esther (Megillah), don costumes, exchange food gifts (mishloach manot), give to charity (matanot l'evyonim), and savor delicious hamantaschen pastries.

This holiday is deeply significant, reminding us of the triumph of unity and courage over adversity, as well as the importance of standing up for our beliefs. Purim is a time for communal celebration, reflection, and embracing our shared heritage.
