This raucous holiday commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by the king's advisor. At Temple Beth Am, we have several options for a range of age groups to celebrate this event, including our annual Purim Carnival, Megillah readings, and spiel.
