Like most holidays in the Jewish calendar, Purim celebrates the near annihilation and last-minute redemption of the Jewish people – this time through the wily actions of Mordechai and Esther in the face of evil Haman.

This year, Purim will be celebrated from sundown March 9 through sundown March 10 (except in Jerusalem; see below).
