Happy Purim!






Purim is a celebration when the tables were turned on Haman who sought the destruction of the Jews in ancient Persia. Through the faith of Esther and Mordacai, the king of Persia allowed the Jews to arm themselves and defeat those who would kill them. Rattles, boos, hisses, and stomping are done every time Haman's name is mentioned.

There is great joy in this holiday. It's filled with costumes, good food, and plenty of fun.

Esther? Isn't that Madonna's new name? I don't see her in the pic?
