Series 2: 2. Purim



We follow Sophia and her family as they celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim. After travelling across to the local kosher bakery, Sophia and her family are shown the traditional food Hamantaschen, before having a go at trying to make their own! Delicious! \n\nOnce they finish up, it’s time for her and her family to put together their own costumes ready to attend the synagogue. When they arrive, the local Jewish community are in full swing, getting ready to celebrate the holiday festival. \n\nAfter decorating the traditional noise-makers, Sophia is ready to use them during the reading of the Megillah. This is where we finally get to learn the full story behind Purim and why it’s so important to the Jewish community. Then comes Mishloach Manot, and Sophia gets to give out special Purim gift bags to friends, family and their local elderly community.\n\nAs the day draws to a close, Sophia’s family hold their final Purim party, known as the Sueda, where they get to enjoy more food and drink with their friends and family and reflect on this exciting and important day.
