PURIM – The Jewish festival of sorrow being turned into joy

Celebrate Purim with these special offers from the Israel Today Shop!

By Israel Today Staff |

On Wednesday evening, March 16, for two days Purim will be celebrated, as is commanded in the book of Esther, to commemorate the time “when their sorrow was turned into joy and their mourning into… celebration“ (Esther 9:22). The festival is often referred to as a “Jewish Carnival” because of the costumes and drama performances, used to retell the prevention of a Jewish genocide!

Wishing you, dear readers, “Chag Purim Sameach” with special offers from our Israel Today Shop!
