Purim 2020

Purim 2020Purim is Tuesday, March 10th this year and it is a fun celebration to participate in. Purim is a Jewish holiday, a happy celebration marking the salvation of the Jewish people from an evil royal advisor named Haman. Purim celebrates the leadership of Queen Esther and the actions of her cousin Mordecai.

Purim feels like a fair or carnival. During Purim, Jews wear costumes and hand out gifts. The traditional Purim gift is a plate of food brought door-to-door to neighbors. If you want to celebrate Purim, remember that it is the one time of year to go all out. Right is wrong, up is down, left is right, and the wine flows freely!

A traditional treat for Purim is Hamantaschen. We have both a traditional Hamantaschen recipe on our website with a choice of apricot or poppyseed filling as well as a savory Feta and Caramelized Onion Hamantaschen recipe.

If you want to celebrate Purim in community, the annual Aquarian Minyan Purim Party is happening at Ashkenaz on Monday from 6 to 9 PM.

And, if you think you would rather stay in and celebrate, here is a great article from the Jewish Boston website with lots of suggestions.

Chag Purim samayach!!
