PURIM

On Purim we celebrate the bravery of Queen Esther, who was married to a king, Ahashverosh. When Esther learned that Haman, who worked for the king, was plotting against the Jews, she summoned the courage to tell the king about Haman's evil plan and saved her people.

Purim is a festival known for extravagant costumes, the exchanging of gift baskets, performances, and a feast. 

Purim 2024 / 5784 will begin on the evening of Saturday, March 23 and will end on the evening of Sunday, March 24.

 

PESACH

Passover, or Pesach (PEH-sach) in Hebrew, commemorates the slavery of the Israelites in Egypt and their ultimate exodus to freedom. This story of redemption from slavery is the “master-story” of the Jewish People – a story that has shaped Jewish consciousness and values. It is essentially a festival of freedom and justice.

Pesach 2024 / 5784 will begin on the evening of Monday, April 22 and will end on the evening of Tuesday, April 30.
