Purim Spiel--Act out the Megillah

Mazel Tov! In 2013, February 24-25 (14 Adar in the Hebrew calendar) celebrates Purim in the Jewish faith. Hebrews celebrate Queen Esther and Mordechai's courage defending their people exiled in Persia from King Ahasuerus and Haman. Here are resources for Jews and gentiles to explore Purim and embrace the holiday more deeply. Why not act out the Megillah story in your Jewish school? There are links in the article for ideas. Kids will love dressing in Bible costumes and retelling the story. Be sure to make some of the graggers (paper noisemakers) for booing Haman! Mazel Tov!
