Celebrate Purim

The Purim Story for Kids
The Purim story has some pretty adult plot points and themes; try these all-ages adaptations of the story so kids can understand and enjoy it too.

Doing Good While Having Fun
Hearing the Megillah (the scroll read on Purim) is just one of four mitzvot for the holiday. Learn how we care for each other with mishloach manot and other traditions.


Talking About Israel

Resources to Help Families Discuss and Process
