About this item

Back by popular demand, the classic JPS holiday anthologies remain essential and relevant in our digital age. Unequaled in-depth compilations of classic and contemporary writings, they have long guided rabbis, cantors, educators, and other readers seeking the origins, meanings, and varied celebrations of the Jewish festivals. 

The Purim Anthology recounts the origins of the first Purim, then examines festival observances in different eras throughout the world, laws and rites, and finally provides plays and poems, stories and songs. This treasury includes “The Origin of Purim” by Solomon Grayzel, “The Esther Story in Art” by Rachel Wischnitzer, “Purim in Music” by A. W. Binder (including an extensive compilation of Purim songs), “The History of Purim Plays” by Jacob Shatzky, Purim celebrations in Tel Aviv by Mortimer J. Cohen, and Purim in humor by Israel Davidson—all together a thoughtful and fun-filled literary feast.
