Purim is a Jewish holiday which commemorates the saving of the Jewish people from Haman, an Achaemenid Persian Empire official who was planning to kill all the Jews, as recounted in the Book of Esther (מגילת אסתרMegillat Ester in Hebrew; usually dated to the 5th century BC).

Haman was the royal vizier to King Ahasuerus (Xerxes I or Artaxerxes I of Persia, “Khshayarsha” and “Artakhsher” in Old Persian, respectively), and he planned to kill all the Jews in the empire. His plans were foiled by Mordecai and Esther, his cousin and adopted daughter who had become Queen of Persia. The day of deliverance became a day of feasting and rejoicing.

Purim is celebrated among Jews by:

  • Exchanging gifts of food and drink, known as mishloach manot
  • Donating charity to the poor, known as mattanot la-evyonim
  • Eating a celebratory meal, known as a se’udat Purim
  • Public recitation (“reading of the megillah”) of the Scroll of Esther, known as kriat ha-megillah, usually in synagogue
  • Reciting additions to the daily prayers and the grace after meals, known as Al HaNissim.

Other customs include wearing masks and costumes, public celebrations and parades, and eating hamantaschen (“Haman’s pocket”); men are encouraged to drink wine or any other alcoholic beverage.
