Mazor Guide for Purim brings you much more about the holiday, its meaning and its traditions... See the links below.

"Purim in Words and Pictures" recounts in detail the extraordinary story of the miraculous reversal of fortune of Persian Jewry in the days of Xerxes I, the emperor who is more widely known as King Achashverosh. The story begins with King Achashverosh’s grandiose party and ends with Mordechai’s appointment as the Persian king’s top minister. The complicated story involves a beauty contest, servants conspiring to kill the king, and an evil plot by an evil man to eliminate the Jewish people. This informative coloring book, which is based on the text of Megillat Esther (the Scroll of Esther), also includes an overview of the main customs and traditions associated with the celebration of the holiday. Recommended for children between the ages of 6-11. Enjoy!
