WHY DO WE CELEBRATE PURIM THE WAY THAT WE DO? How did we get from the (very action-packed) story in the Book of Esther to the customs and mitzvot we associate with Purim today? And how might these customs and mitzvot be meaningful for us this year? We'll explore the origins of several different customs and commandments associated with Purim, with particular attention to the ways in which these customs and commandments are interpretations of the Book of Esther itself.
