Hi Everyone!

Purim, the fun-filled Jewish holiday, falls on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. This year Purim begins Wednesday night March 7, 2012.
(In Jerusalem it starts Thursday night March 8)

The following resources will help you appreciate and enjoy the holiday.

The Jewish Trivia Quiz

Purim Trivia
Why do people eat poppy seeds on Purim ?
From what tribe was Mordecai ?
Why was Haman angry at Mordechai ?
Who was queen of Persia before Esther ?
Esther had another name, what was it ?
How many times is Haman's name mentioned in the megillah ?

The above questions are examples from the multiple choice Flash quiz. There are two levels of questions, two timer settings. Both kids and adults will find it enjoyable.

Free Purim Clipart

Whether you need a picture to attach to your "Mishloach Manot", a picture for your child's class project, a graphic for your synagogue, Hillel or JCC Purim announcement, the Jewish Clipart Database has the pictures for you. You can copy, save and print the graphics in three different sizes.

My Hebrew Songbook - Purim Songs

Enter the songbook and choose the category Purim. You can view any song online or create printed song sheets with several songs together for a sing along. All Hebrew is graphic so you do not need Hebrew support to view or print the songs. All songs include Hebrew nikud (vowels).

Worth printing several to entertain your guests at the Purim Seudah (festive meal).
