Temple Beth El celebrates Purim

Thursday, May 9, 2013 by ANITA HIRSCH Special to The Press in Local News

Purim was celebrated at Temple Beth El with the reading of the Megillah, which tells the story of the victory of the Jewish community in Persia, led by Queen Esther and her cousin Mordecai.

They discovered that Prime Minister Haman and King Ahashverosh were plotting to kill all the Jews.

But Esther convinced the king not to go ahead with the plan and had Haman killed instead.

So the story is read and because of the happy outcome, a celebration with costumes, games, noisemakers, and fun is held.

It is a joyous celebration.
