Chag Purim Sameach - Happy Purim! We are smack-dab in the middle of it, as we say down south! Purim began at sundown last evening and continues through till sundown tonight.
Purim is a time of fun, food and fellowship in our lives. We read "the whole magilla" - the entire book of Esther and we remember the power of Adonai to save us in times of distress. We also remember that, like Esther, we were born for such a time as this - to fulfill G-d's call on our lives. You can learn about Purim here on my blog.
Didn't my hamentaschen turn out beautifully? I was very pleased with them this year. I think I have the hang of using my thumbs to make the shape of Hamen's hat. They're very easy to make with my recipe here
We did a Purim play at the synagogue and it was so much fun. Some people dressed up and some just wore hats. We used printed scripts and didn't rehearse (on purpose), so that added to the laughter. Here's the cast:
Before the play started, we had a surprise visit from the oldest rabbi of Israel. He was visiting the area, and dropped in for a visit. He was a hoot!
After the play started, we had another surprise visitor. Our grandson walked through the play unexpectedly....

Chag Purim is one of the songs we sing at Purim:
And I love the Maccabeats that tells the story of Purim in a fun way:
I'd love to hear about your Purim celebration!
