Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the defeat of Haman, who plotted to kill all the Jews in Persia, and the quick thinking of Queen Esther and her cousin Mordecai, who saved their people by persuading Esther’s husband the king to thwart Haman’s plans. Commemorating the feast during which the king made his critical decision, Purim is celebrated with feasting, carnivals, and much rejoicing.
