The Festival of Purim: 3 Ways to Celebrate With Your Family!

Looking for ways to enjoy the Jewish holiday, Purim, with your kids? Here are three fun ways! 

  • Eat traditional foods such as hamantaschen. 
  • Dress up as different characters – Harry Potter, Batman, wizards - you name it! The tradition of dressing up is based upon the way Esther concealed her Jewish identity at the beginning of the Purim Story. 
  • Put on a play! At the conclusion of the Megillah reading, many synagogues will put on plays (shpiels) that reenact the Purim Story and poke fun at the villain.

Happy Purim!
