Happy Purim! (and the BBC moves Megillat Esther)


Wishing all readers celebrating Purim a very happy holiday. 

Purim is of course a festival marked with plenty of humour.

“…there are three things you are supposed to do on Purim: read the Megillah (the relevant section of the Talmud, the central religious Jewish text)…”

Chag Sameach!
