Congregations B'nai Chaim and Havurim will celebrate Purim with a family carnival, March 24, in Murrieta.

The carnival celebrates the Jewish holiday of Purim which starts evening of March 20 and ends the evening of March 21. Purim commemorates the saving of the Jewish people from Haman who was planning to kill them. According to the biblical book of Esther, Haman, royal adviser to the king of Persia, was thwarted by Mordecai and his adopted daughter Esther, who had risen to become queen. The day of deliverance has become a day of feasting and rejoicing.

It is traditional to make noise every time Haman's name is mentioned and by blotting out Haman's name, it symbolically obliterates evil. Everyone is invited to share the joy of the Purim holiday.

Congregation B'nai Chaim, Congregation Havurim and The Lamad Academy are located at 29500 Via Princesa, in Murrieta. For more information, visit and or call (951) 677-7350.
