Amazing and fun videos, activities, and ideas for Purim!

Purim traditions include dressing up, sharing gift baskets or mishloach manot with friends, making noise by shaking groggers, and staying up late with your friends and community. People give tzedakah and read the Book of Esther, or megillah, which shares the story of how the Jews of Persia were saved from annihilation. Want to know more? Check out the sections below!

Whatever After: Two Peas in a Pod book cover

Whatever After: Two Peas in a Pod by Sarah Mlynowski

Abby and her brother enter a fairy-tale world through a mirror in their basement, right into a fractured version of The Princess and the Pea. When the Kingdom of Bog anoints Abby as its new princess, she decides to run a contest to find her strongest, bravest and kindest successor. Abby’s princess contest is inspired by the story of Purim, when King Ahasuerus searches for a replacement for Queen Vashti and marries the courageous Queen Esther.
