Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar world wide and in Jerusalem on the 15th day of Adar. Purim commemorates a time of great challenge and fear for the Jewish population of Persia over 2300 years ago and the miraculous events that transformed the dark times into bright and hopeful days.

- Kri-at Megillah - gathering in synagogues for the reading of Megillat Esther
- Matanot Laevyonim - giving charity to the poor
- Mishloach Manot - exchanging gifts of goodies with relatives, friends, and neighbors

1. A Festive Meal

2. Masquerading,
Carnivals and the Purim Shpiel (entertaining skits based on the historical account of the Persian king, Mordechai, Haman, and Queen Esther)

3. Eradicating the name of Haman.

This is accomplished by:
 - Stumping feet and making noise with graggers upon the mention of Haman's name.
 - Haman Tashen (triangular pastries filled with poppy seed - "mon" in Yiddish) are eaten to denote the obliteration of Haman (the "mon" in the pastry represents Haman).  
 - Some people write the name Haman on the bottom of their shoe, and obliterate the name with every step they take.
