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.

This year, Purim begins in the evening on Monday, March 6, 2023 and ends in the evening on Tuesday, March 7, 2023.
