This year is a leap year in the Hebrew calendar…not an extra day but an extra month of Adar allowing for two occasions to celebrate Purim.

Traditionally, Purim is highlighted in the second month of Adar…but the children at Sydney’s Yeshiva College have also celebrated the “Little Purim”..Purim Katan.

Rabbi Dr Dovid Slavin told J-Wire: “The boys came dressed up as Mordechai and the girls as Queen Esther.  The children delighted in a whole array of fun musical games as well as Israeli dancing and face painting.  Teachers dressed up to enhance the Purim spirit in the school. And of course, Our Big Kitchen catered the event.”

Next month, the children will celebrate Purim again.
