PURIM, FESTIVAL OF LOTS WILL BE OBSERVED MAR. 14 Will Bo Utihorcd In Evening of March 18 Witli Reading Of Book of Esther, SIGNIFICANCE OF OCCASION Tho Mlh of the Hebrew month Adar falls this year on Friday, March 1 (, and on this iny the Jews all over tlio word will oclubrato the Feast of 3'urlm--the Festival of Lots. Though this festival has nrver been considered an a religious holy day, it hae evet been held In high esteem and has assumed religious importance with ·the march of centuries. It is uehered in on the evening of March 13, with the reading of the Rook of Esther which gives ne tho origin o! this festival, and it is celebrated with great festivity and joy. The Book of Esther records that Ahasuerus, Icing of Persia and Media, depoeed his queen, Vaehti, because eho had refused to appear and display her charms before I ho princes of the roalm. Ahusucrus then chose Esther ai a successor to the unruly Vaehti. leather was a beautiful orphan living u n d e r the protection of her cousin oNIordecal--a wealthy, prominent court Jew of tho city of Shushan. At about that time Ahasueruo raised his favorite general, Human the Agagite, to the position of G r a n d Vizier. This Jiaman hated Monlecal because he had refused to io obeisance to him, and Hamiui extended his hatred to the ehtiro Jewish peo-ple then living in Persia. One day H n m n n came before Ahas- ii-erus and accused the Jewleh people of being » danger to the unity of the Persian Empire, saying that they ·were "scattered and d i s p e r s e d throughout tho land, distinct In their laws from all othor peoples, and refusing to obey the laws of the King." He prorniael the King a huge sum of money for the destruction of the J«wteh people. Whreupon Ahaeuerus said: "Do unto the people as it eoemthed good to tliee."/ When Mordecai learned of the edict of destruction, he went, about In the streets of Shushnn in mourning garb and conveyed the evil tiding to Esther. He Implored her to beeseeeh her royal Biiouee to suve he) 1 people. Though at flret resulctant to endanger her life for the eake of her people, she finaly gathered courage and pleaded with Ahasuerus to annul the evil decree against her peoplu. Tho king became furious; Haman had craftily avoided mentioning the name of tho people he thought to annihilate. The king then ordered Haman to be hanged on the same gallows w h i c h ho had prepared for Mordecai, ami issued a counter Oe- sree giviri? tho Jews tho right to organize for eelf-dofonse.. In commemoration of thi« fateful event the Feast of Purim was Instituted as a day of joy and festivity. Perfect dyeing so easily done!
