At the heart of Purim lies the story of Queen Esther and how she saved the Jews from the evil schemes of Haman. Megillat Esther, the Book of Esther, is read publicly twice during the holiday. Since it is important to hear all of the words as they are read, many people take their own copy of the megillah with them to the synagogue so that they can follow along as it's chanted aloud. This superb paper scroll contains the complete text of the Book of Esther, illustrated with colorful designs, along with the blessings associated with its reading. An easy-to-carry plastic cylinder will keep this scroll safe, secure, and convenient.

One of Purim's most iconic traditions is drowning out the name of the wicked Haman with a grogger; every time Haman's name is mentioned, everyone waves their grogger and stamps their feet to make as much noise as possible! There are many groggers around, but we love this vibrantly colorful grogger. Made of wood, this it's beautifully painted with a delightful depiction of Jerusalem and the words "Mishenikhnas Adar Marbim B'Simcha" ("When the Month of Adar Arrives, We Increase Our Joy") in Hebrew. The perfect way to get into the Purim cheer!
