Purim Art

Purim is a Jewish holiday, celebrated in part by the reading of the Megillah (Scroll of Esther). When the villain Haman is mentioned, people twirl groggers (Purim noisemakers) and stamp their feet to destroy his evil name. During Purim, there is a special mitzvah (a good deed performed out of religious duty) to give to at least two needy individuals. At least two prepared foods are given to friends - even children participate in the gift-giving. The event is celebrated with a festive meal of traditional foods and wine is consumed. There are also a special prayer said called the Al HaNissim.

There is also a custom during Purim in which children dress up to disguise themselves. This references the allusion to the fact that the miracle of Purim was disguised in natural garments and there is a special pastry called the hamantash that consumed; it is a three cornered crust pastry with a hidden filling. Purim is a joyous celebration emphasizing the gift of unity and giving. To add beauty and meaning to this occasion, you will find decorative and useful Purim gifts by Jewish artists such as Jack Jaget and Anat Mayer who make groggers and the Scroll of Esther Megillah on Rotem Online (www.rotem.net).
