Your Purim Guide: 2018


Purim. Is. Here.

(Well technically, Purim is Wednesday, February 28th – Thursday, March 1st. So, it kinda depends when you’re reading this page…)

Anyway, we know you’ve probably been eagerly counting the days until the so-called “Jewish Halloween” for the past 12 months, and have been having dreams of poppyseed hamantaschens, groggers, and The Book of Esther every night. But, just in case you haven’t been vigorously preparing for this phenomenal holiday, and it just kind of creeped up on you out of nowhere this year – not to worry!

Your favorite GatherDC-ers have your Purim needs covered.

Check out our roundup of the best Purim parties, hamantaschen recipes, and Megillah readings across the DMV! Oh, and if we missed an awesome event – submit it here or email Allie Friedman. And however you celebrate, we wish you a chag Purim sameach – a happy and joyous Purim!
