Purim (Hebrew: "lots", from the word pur) is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman, a story recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther (Megillat Esther).
Observed by the public reading of the Book of Esther. When the Names of Mordachai and Esther are spoken the listeners cheer loudly and as the name of Haman is read the listeners boo loudly so that the name is blotted out.
Usually also celebrated with a raucous play, often by the children, of the Book of Esther.
Special pastries called Hamentashen, "Haman's ears," are eaten and baskets of goodies are sent to friends.
Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG'vurah ("Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day"), known colloquially in Israel and abroad as Yom HaShoah and in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day, or Holocaust Day, is observed as Israel's day of commemoration for the approximately six million Jews and five million others who perished in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany and its accessories, and for the Jewish resistance in that period.
In Israel, it is a national memorial day and public holiday. It was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi. It is held on the 27th of Nisan (April/May), unless the 27th would be adjacent to Shabbat, in which case the date is shifted by a day.
