Celebrate Purim 2021 With Beth Am

Purim Begins on Thursday Evening, February 25

Get your costumes and groggers ready for Purim, the holiday of joy and laughter! As we read in the Book of Esther, "Mordechai sent dispatches to all the Jews... to observe the fourteenth and fifteenth days of Adar every year... as days of feasting and merrymaking, and as an occasion for sending gifts (mishloach manot) to one another and presents to the poor" (Esther 9:20-22). We'll have opportunities for people of all ages to hear the Megillah and celebrate the triumph of Esther and Mordechai over the wicked Haman. Below you will find a schedule of Beth Am Purim celebrations as well as Purim resources.
