Purim 2021

Purim is celebrated from sundown on Thursday, February 25, through sundown on Friday, February 26.

 The holiday is filled with amazing traditions!

Purim is the celebration of Esther and Mordechai’s triumph over wicked Haman.
On Purim night, we rejoice through recounting Esther’s story and through drinking, wearing masks, and partying. We also give back to our community – by giving mishloach manot (gifts of food) to friends and donating to charity.
