Join the University of Kentucky Hillel and Jewish Student's organization for their Purim celebration! 

Purim is the celebration of the Story of Esther, who along with Mordecai foiled the Persian plot to kill the Jews. This holiday is a festive one and a celebration of Jewish culture. To celebrate we exchange gifts of food (mishloach manot) and hold a festive party. We invite all members of the Kentucky campus to come celebrate this festive holiday, and learn more about Jewish culture and Jewish life on the Kentucky Campus. Kosher Refreshments will be provided. All people are welcome to attend. A Jewish movie will be shown.
