                     Purim Celebrations 2019 in Wakefield 

The Purim story is told in the Book of Esther, known as the Megillah, celebrating how Esther bravely saved the Jewish people in Persia 2500 years ago.   The holiday has a carnival-like atmosphere with masks and costumes worn to temple. Money and gift baskets are given to the poor, sick, and friends. .
