Purim Celebration at the Fountain on March 27, 2016

Time for Some Fun!

Purim, celebrated on the 14th of Adar, is a most fun-filled day. It commemorates miraculous salvation and deliverance. This is detailed in the Book of Esther.

The Purim Story in a Nutshell

The Persian empire of the 4th century BCE extended over 127 lands, and all the Jews were its subjects. When King Ahasuerus had his wife, Queen Vashti, deposed for failing to follow his orders, he orchestrated a beauty pageant to find a new queen. A Jewish girl, Esther, found favor in his eyes and became the new queen—though she refused to divulge the identity of her nationality.

Meanwhile, the anti-Semitic Haman was appointed prime minister of the empire. Mordechai, the leader of the Jews (and Esther’s cousin), defied the king’s orders and refused to bow to Haman. Haman was incensed and convinced the king to issue a decree ordering the extermination of all the Jews on the 13th of Adar—a date chosen by a lottery Haman made (hence the name Purim, “lots”).

Mordechai galvanized all the Jews, convincing them to repent, fast and pray. Meanwhile, Esther asked the king and Haman to join her for a feast. At the feast, Esther revealed to the king her Jewish identity. Haman was hanged, Mordechai was appointed prime minister in his stead, and a new decree was issued granting the Jews the right to defend themselves against their enemies.

On the 13th of Adar, the Jews mobilized and killed many of their enemies. On the 14th of Adar, they rested and celebrated. Amazingly, God’s name is never mentioned in the book. Hence we hold masquerade parties in memory of the hidden dealings of our righteous Creator. Please join us in this festive event.

If you are not able to come, we encourage you to celebrate nonetheless. Read the book of Esther and praise God for his miracles and mighty acts. Give to the needy, be generous. We traditionally donate to Food for the Poor at this time. You may hit the donate button on the webpage and we will include your offering. Also, consider sending food gifts to friends. Then, gather your family and invite a few folks for your own masquerade party. Dress the table festively and sing, drink and laugh!! The joy of the Lord shall be our strength.
