Purim is a joyous holiday that recounts the saving of the Jewish people from a threatened massacre during the Persian period. The story of Purim is recounted in the Book of Esther, whose heroine Esther plays the leading role in saving her people. The holiday is traditionally celebrated by giving gifts to friends and the poor. (adapted from www.myjewishlearning.com)
