Celebrated annually on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar, Purim commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman, the antagonist in the Book of Esther who plans to kill the entire Jewish minority in the ancient Persian Empire. Haman’s plans were foiled by Mordechai and Queen Esther, and the day of deliverance became a day of feasting and rejoicing.
On Purim, the Book of Esther is publicly read, and every time Haman’s name is mentioned there is special noisemaker that is used to express disdain for him. And Purim customs include wearing masks and costumes, public celebrations and drinking wine. And there are four main obligations of the day, including: listening to the public reading of the Book of Esther in the evening and again in the following morning, sending food gifts to friends, giving charity to the poor, and eating a festive meal of dumpling, special breads, seeds and nuts, and pastries.
