Description:

A holiday of delirious joy, of friendship, of charity, of brotherhood, of rededication to the ideals of Judaism - all of these are Purim. It is the first festival marking a miracle that came about after destruction and exile, at a time when Jews wondered if they were still bound by the ancient covenant with the Creator Who had cast them out. Then came the hidden miracle of Purim, proving that the destiny of Israel always remains valid - even when it seems to be hiding in the shadows of history.

This book, part of the popular ArtScroll Holiday Series, draws together several elements of the day's history, underlying meaning, and observances. It is a selection from many sources, each of its sections filled with information and inspiration that, in combination, will add flavor to the day for any reader.

  • The Overview presents a philosophical perspective on the meaning and purpose of Purim.
  • The Insights offer a cross section of anecdotes, ideas, and comments, culled from a broad range of tradition.
  • The Laws provide a brief digest of the laws and customs of Purim, designed to deal with practive, rather than theory.
  • Finally, the liturgical section presents Megillas Esther and some of the praises and prayers that are unique to Purim.

Drawn from the rich lodes of Jewish thought and practice, this book will help the reader enter the joy and hear the message of the day, for the better we understand the deeper content of Purim and what it represents, the better we absorb its message for all generations and lands.
