Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people of the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman, a story recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther. The day of deliverance became a day of feasting and rejoicing. Customs for the holiday include wearing of masks and costumes, and public celebration.
