Purim is such a joyous time. We celebrate the triumph of the Jews of Persia over yet another evil doer who would have killed them all. We love to BOO at his name " HAMAN"! ( BOO)
The children dress in costume, we eat 'three pointed hat' shaped pastries, have fun songs and music, and hear the story of Esther told.
Ours was a terrific event, a party with all the fun it should be.
Now on towards Passover!!
