One Great Purim Party Can Change The World..

Story of Purim

  • Purim is a holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman.

  • Haman planned to kill all the Jews in the empire, but his plans were foiled by Mordecai and his adopted daughter Queen Esther. The day of deliverance became a day of feasting and rejoicing.

  • Purim is celebrated by giving mutual gifts of food and drink ... drinking wine, wearing of masks and costumes, and public celebration.

  • Scholars claim one should drink on Purim until he can "no longer distinguish between the phrases arur Haman ('Cursed is Haman') and baruch Mordechai ('Blessed is Mordecai').

  • Other authorities have written that one should drink until one is unable to calculate the gematria (numerical values).
