Hebrew Students Celebrate Purim

Purim - The Jewish costume holiday was celebrated with the Hebrew 102 and 202 classes. We got some reinforcement from  "Friends from Israel"- two Israeli volunteers in a gap year before their army service- bringing Israel to the local Jewish and non-Jewish community (Hadas and Alon).
So, what is Purim? The jolly festival is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates thesalvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).
