Purim in the (Boulder) Holyland!

The happiest day on the Jewish calendar, the holiday of Purim, is just a few days away. In Judaism, the month of Adar and the holiday of Purim are times periods when we are encouraged to tap into the highest levels of joy.

The great holiday of Purim is so holy that the wise sages of old tell us that it’s an even holier day than Yom Kippur.

It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian empire from Haman’s plot.

There are four core observances that we do on Purim:

  • Reading of the Megillah 
  • Giving money gifts to at least two poor people.
  • Sending gifts of two kinds of food to at least one person
  • A festive Purim feast

Rabbi Pesach & Chany Scheiner, the co-directors of the Boulder Center for Judaism, personally invite you to partake in our grand Purim Celebrations this year.
