Purim celebrates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction, a story recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther. This is an ideal introduction for non-Jewish children to experience another religion.
Lots of fun. Inexpensive. For a list of Purim events in Toronto, see: http://bit.ly/YGdtcw . For an account of my experience at a Purim festival in Toronto. See: https://www.torontomulticulturalcalendar.com/2011/03/08/purim-festival/
