Purim Party


Today is Purim, a holy day that marks the rescue of the Jews in ancient Persia from annihilation. And the Maltz Museum is celebrating with Family Day: Purim Pandemonium; folks will wear goofy costumes, make masks, and play with groggers (those wrist-twirling, headache-inducing noisemakers that contribute to New Year's Eve festivities). There's also a little bit of education tossed into the revelry: Traditional stories outline the history of the holiday and the people.
