Purim celebrated at local Synagogue 

The Jewish Festival of Purim started last night, and many local Synagogues celebrated in style this afternoon.

Children dressed up for a masquerade contest and celebrated by reading the book of Esther.

The group also continued in the Purim tradition of giving the gift of food to friends.

In this case, guests feasted on a not so traditional Italian buffet.

Purim commemorates the saving of the Jewish people in ancient Persia.
