Purim, the fun-filled Jewish holiday, falls on the
14th of the Hebrew month of Adar. This year Purim
begins Monday evening March 17.
(In Jerusalem it is celebrated one day later)
The J Site - Jewish Education and Entertainment
has several entertaining features for Purim:
Why do people eat poppy seeds on Purim ?
From what tribe was Mordecai ?
How many times is Haman's name mentioned in the megillah ?
These are just a few examples of Purim trivia that you will
find in the Jewish Trivia Database. The facts, the whole facts,
and nothing but the facts!
Whether you need a picture for your child's class project,
a graphic for your synagogue, Hillel or JCC Purim announcement,
the Jewish Clipart Database has the pictures for you.
You can copy, save and print the graphics in three

Enter the Multilingual Word Search game and choose the
language you would like to play in: English, Hebrew or

been more fun. Each game is randomly generated from a
special list of Purim words. You can even print out a

language with the timer on. Remember that looking at the
solution page is a last resort :-)
