Purim is celebrated on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar, which this year falls on the eve of March 20. The most important Purim custom is reading the Purim story from the scroll of Esther, also called the Megillah. Come and join us on Friday, March 15, as Rabbi Symons leads us in celebrating this holiday.
Often on this day Jews enjoy special Purim cookies, called hamantaschen, which means “Haman’s pockets.” We will be enjoying these at our Oneg Shabbat.
Jews are commanded to be especially charitable during Purim, often giving monetary donations to charity or money to those in need.
Remember to bring boxes of mac & cheese or rice to use as groggers during the service, which will then to be donated to Bluffton Self Help.
