Purim in Crown Heights
In the Jewish religion, Purim is a holiday commemorating the failure of an ancient plot to kill all the Jews in Persia. Purim revolves around the story of Queen Esther, who alerts the Jews to their coming destruction and concocts a plan that eventually saves them. Every year on Purim, Jewish communities around the world hold public readings from the Book of Esther. But more importantly, they dress their children in adorable costumes.
