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.
