Write about Purim

Purim is a festival of joyous celebration, celebrated on 14th Adar or 15th Adar in Israel - this falls in late February or March.

 

It commemorates the deliverance of the Israelites as told in the book of Esther. Haman was a villain who plotted to exterminate the Jews but Mordecai and Queen Esther foil the plan and the Jews’ enemies are killed.

 

Children can choose a template to write about any aspect of the festival of Purim. There are also stickers, paint tools and a photobank to help them create a picture to go with their work.
