Irish and Jews Will elebrate Thursday Irishman and Jew will make merry ogethcr this week, for both' their oiliest holidays, St. Patrick's Day and Purim, fall in 1938 on the 17th of March. The Jewish holiday, mown as Purim or the Feast of jots,'begins next Wednesday evening,! lasting through sundown on Thursday, and will be marked by a oyous spirit in both synagogue and home. pe observance of Purim is based on a Biblical law which occurs at the end of the Book of Esther, which commemorates the deliverance of Jie Jewish people from' the linnds of Haman, a Persian anti-Semite of :he fourth century before the Christian era, A central point of the Purim celebration is the reading of the Book of Esther in the synagogue. This reading is done from n special scroll known as the Hebrew word for scroll as the "Megillah," and stands apart from every other synagogal reading in that, during its presentation, laughter and levity are winked at by the rabbis. Every mention of the name of Haman is generally punctuated by a good-natured outburst of noise made by the whir of special Purim noise-makers, like those used at New Year's Eve celebrations. The special delicacy which is enjoyed during the holiday carries the name of this Persian prototype of modern anti-Semites. No festival of Purim is complete without this delicacy -- delicious three-cornered cookies filld with prunes or with poppy seeds and known as Haman- taschcn, or "Haitians pockets." Tradition demands that the less fortunate members of the community, both Jew and Gentile, be not neglected on this holiday. They arc remembered by the sending of gifts. Masquerades, children's parties and joyous hilarity arc associated with Purim. Grccnsburff Alan Dies. William H. Clendaniel, 64, stepfather of Charles Milliron of Mount Pleasant, died Saturday night at the home of Mrs. J. R. Parfitt at Greensburg. The funeral service will be held Tuesday afternoon.
