Purim 2017 starts the evening of March 11 and ends the evening of March 12.
Purim celebrates the Jewish people’s salvation from Haman’s (boo) evil plot to annihilate all the Jews in one day.
During Purim, Jews read the megillah, feed friends and family, give to the needy (Tzedakah), and celebrate with a festive meal
Purim is a fun Jewish holiday for kids. Kids dress up as characters from the Megillah. When the Megillah is read or acted out, the kid’s eagerly anticipate the mention of Haman (the bad guy). When ever Haman is mentioned, the custom is to make noise, boo, and spin groggers (Purim noismakers).
