 Purim - Bank of Israel Commemorative Coin


The name Purim is derived from the Persian word "pur," meaning "lot". Haman cast lots in order to determine the day for the mass destruction of all the Jews. However, with the help of Mordechai and his niece Esther, the events took a miraculous turn and the Jews were saved. The wicked decree was canceled and Haman and his ten sons were hanged on a tree. On Purim, celebrated on the 14th of Adar, the Scroll of Esther, a book of the Bible, is read twice: once on the eve of the holiday and once the morning of Purim. In Jerusalem and walled cities, Purim is celebrated a day later. Purim is a day of joy, with feasting, drinking and costumes. People send gifts of food to one another and especially to the poor.
