The holiday of Purim commemorates the survival of the Jewish people in Ancient Persia from the threat of annihilation at the hand of the powerful and evil Haman. To celebrate this joyous holiday, it is traditional to read from Megillat Ester (The Book of Esther) which tells the story of the events relating to the holiday, dress in costumes, give gifts to the poor (matanot l’evyonim), give gifts to friends (mishloach manot) and enjoy a Purim feast (seudat purim).
Please join the men and women of the PEF Jewish Committee at our annual Purim program as we celebrate the story of Purim with music and graggers, falafels and hummus, Israeli salads and Kosher wine, and of course, many hamentaschen.
