The Purim Holiday, the most joyous of the Jewish calendar, commemorates the victory of the Jews over the wicked Haman, nearly 2,400 years ago. On this day, through the intervention of the heroine Queen Esther, the Jews were spared total annihilation. The happiness of the day is expressed by sending gifts of food to friends, giving charity to the poor, and most of all - by a grand, celebratory feast. In addition, a special scroll, known as the "Megillah," is read. The Megillah recounts the entire story of Purim. Please Join us this year at Chabad of Green Valley/Henderson.
