Purim is celebrated every year around late winter or early spring on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). The festival of Purim is celebrated to remember the lives of the Jewish people saved from a plot in ancient Persia “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day” by an anti-Semite prime minister named Haman.
People of all faiths are invited to celebrate Purim's commemoration of freedom.
Although a Jewish holiday, Purim is the perfect time for all faiths to join in the carnival of fun celebrating the freedom to be who one wishes to be. Purim Carnivals have become a time to invite friends, neighbors and family to join in joyous festivities commemorating freedom.
North Country Reform Temple in Glen Cove, NY invites everyone to celebrate at their annual Purim Carnival.
