Celebrating Purim With Your Family

Purim is a holiday that feels like it's made for families. Traditions include dressing up, sharing gift baskets or mishloach manot with friends, making noise by shaking groggers, and staying up late with your friends and community. People do tzedakah and also read the Book of Esther, or megillah, which shares the story of how the Jews of Persia were saved from annihilation.

Next year, Purim will begin in the evening on Wednesday, March 16, 2022 and end in the evening on Thursday, March 17, 2022.
