Purim 2024 with TBI

Celebrate Purim 2024 with your Progressive Jewish Community!

One of the most joyous and fun holidays in the Jewish calendar, Purim is a thankful affirmation of Jewish survival against all odds.

The festival is celebrated by a typically lively reading of the Megillah (the Scroll of Esther), which tells of the time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination.
