They Tried to Kill Us, We Survived, Let’s Eat

The joyous Jewish holiday of Purim starts tonight [Saturday, 3/19]. It commemorates the beautiful young Jewish woman named Esther, one of the wives of Ahasuerus, King of Persia. At great risk to herself Esther persuaded the King to save the Jews living in Persia from a plot to murder them. The story is told in the Book of Esther in the Bible.

Like many Jewish holidays, the theme is “They tried to kill us, we survived, let’s eat.”
