Purim / פורים
Purim (Hebrew: פּוּרִים, Pûrîm “lots”, from the word pur, related to Akkadian pūru) is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman, a story recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther (Megillat Esther).
Purim begins at sundown on Sat, 11 March 2017.
I recommend you read the book of Esther this week. Don,t forget ancient Persia is today’s Iran.
