FRAMINGHAM – The Sisterhood at Temple Beth Am held a community Purim Carnival on Sunday.
Purim (held on the 14th day of the Hebrew month) celebrates the day Esther, Queen of Persia, saved the Jewish people from execution by Haman, an adviser to the Persian king.
The festive Jewish holiday, although a minor holiday, is celebrated with individuals wearing costumes, playing games, and food.
There was a DJ who provided music for dancing, plenty of games, face painting, make you own sundaes, a caricature station, and more.
The Sisterhood organized the event and opened it up to the community inside and outside the Temple.
