Purim on the J site, 68 Cool Purim Videos, 82 Purim Hotsites

Hi Everyone!

Purim, the fun-filled Jewish holiday, falls on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. This year Purim begins Monday night March 9, 2009. (In Jerusalem it is celebrated one day later.)

The J Site - Jewish Education and Entertainment

has several entertaining features for Purim:

Purim Trivia

Why do people eat poppy seeds on Purim ?
From which 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 ?
What did the king do when he couldn't sleep ?
What does the word "Esther" mean ?

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.

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.

Additional Purim resources and games on the J site include:
