Purim celebrates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia, in the year 356 BCE, from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day (Esther).” (Purim literally means “lots”, for Haman determined the day of annihilation by throwing a lottery.) It is observed by public readings of the Megillah – “Scroll of Esther,” sending food portions to friends, giving gifts of money to the poor, and enjoying a festive meal accompanied with joyous drink.
