This year Purim falls on FEBRUARY 28. Events take place in the Persian Empire during the reign of King Ahasuerus (485-465 B.C.E) as described in the Book of Esther (The Megilah)
Prime Minister, Haman, planned for the eradication of all the Jews of the Persian-Empire. Haman cast lots to determine the day of the massacre; the lots fell on the 13th day of Adar. Mordechai, uncle of Esther, the queen, thwarted Haman’s plot through Esther.

PURIM, a very exciting holiday, celebrates the liberation of the Jewish people from an annihilation plot, instigated by the evil Haman, a descendent of the Jew-hating tribe of Amelek. Haman was an advisor to the Persian King. Had it not been for the last minute intervention of Achashverosh’s Jewish Queen, Esther, Haman’s plot would have wiped out the entire Jewish population of Persia in one day!
