THE STORY OF PURIM
Lovely rhymes and wonderful images relate the Story of Purim to young children in a fun and enjoyable fashion.
The holiday of Purim is celebrated every year in the month of Adar, four weeks before Passover. Purim is plural for the word Pur, which means "lot". It refers to the evil plot of Haman who drew lots to choose the best day to eliminate the Jewish people who lived in the Persian Empire during the days of King Achashverosh (Xerxes I).
Purim celebrates the amazing miracle and the reversal of fortune experienced by the Jews of Persia (Iran), who were saved by the beautiful and brave Queen Esther.
