Have you found a place to go this Sunday for a Purim carnival and shpiel (funny play about the Purim story)? Do you have Purim stories to read to your kids? Stories do not necessarily have to be about Purim itself to apply to the holiday. A story about courage, heroes, joy and gladness… these could all apply to the holiday’s themes. A great book that you can find at the library or on Amazon is called Ella Sets the Stage, about a child who finds her talent. It would be interesting to talk with your children about what they are meant to do! You can share that Esther, one of Purim’s central characters, discovered what she was meant to do and she did it: she helped her community by confronting the King; she was scared and she had to be brave; she knew this was what she was meant to do!
