Purim (March 20-21, 2019)

In leap years, when there are two months of Adar, Purim is celebrated in the second month of Adar, so it is always one month before Passover. ... The word “Purim” means “lots” and refers to the lottery that Haman used to choose the date for the massacre.


The wonderful occasion known as Purim, which starts on 20th March, 2019, commemorates the deliverance of the Jews in Persia from their evil royal advisor Hamman about 2,500 years ago. Observed annually on the 14th of the Jewish month of Adar, the festival consists of reading the Book of Esther, gift-giving, charitable activities and of course, joyous merrymaking and feasting. Add to your Purim celebrations by taking a merry trip through our grand section dedicated to this beautiful festival. Go through the history of the occasion, wish your friends and loved ones with cute e-cards linked to the event, check out the recipes, jokes, craft ideas related to the festival and more
