Your DC Purim Guide: 2019/5779

Raise your hand if…

  • You like to party
  • Eat sugary cookies filled with peanut butter/chocolate/raspberry jam
  • Dress in costume when its not Halloween
  • Enjoy libations guilt free
  • Scream really loudly about political figures you despise

Well, you are in luck…

Purim is just around the corner.

Since its been a full year (or more?!) since you last celebrated this glorious holiday, here’s a little refresher of the Purim story: An awful anti-Semitic man wanted to destroy the Jews. He didn’t. We partied.

If you want more of a history refresher, try going to one of the many Megillah-readings around DC (listed below) or watching this brand new investigative podcast, “Haman: A True Crime Story”.

 

There’s also a huge slew of other Purim parties, hamantaschen recipes, and gatherings across the DMV! Oh, and if we missed a Purim event – submit it here or email Allison Friedman.

However you celebrate, we wish you a chag Purim sameach – a happy and joyous Purim!
