Purim is a Jewish holiday in late winter/early spring. It celebrates saving the Jewish people from Haman who was planning to kill all of the Jews in his country, the ancient Achaemenid Persian Empire. It is a time to dress up in costumes, to read the Scroll of Esther and to share a special meal with family and friends. It is also a time to give to those less fortunate. A special treat for Purim is hamantashen, a triangular jam or fruit filled cookie. Like other Jewish festivities, this a special event with special foods, symbols and good family fun. Learning about Purim by coloring images of Purim and tracing words associated with these images is a good activity for young people.
