Purim commemorates the miraculous salvation of the Jewish people from genocide at the hands of the ancient Persian Empire as recounted in the biblical Book of Esther some 2,500 years ago. Every year since then Jews all over the world commemorate this event with feasting, joy and retelling of the story of Purim.
