Purim 1st part

Listen to a selection of music around the Purim holiday

The word « purim » comes from the accadian word « pur » which means « to draw lots »…

The holiday of Purim makes reference to the dice thrown by Haman, 1st minister of king Ahasuerus, to choose the correct day (14th Adar) to kill all the Jews.

This holiday commemorates the salvation of the Jews of the Persian empire around the mid 5th century before JC, saved by the queen Esther from the evil Haman.

 

During this holiday, it is traditional to play music, theater and to dance.
