Purim Party

Fun ways to remember

Purim parties are a fun way to learn, teach and remember God's faithfulness to his covenant people.

A good Purim party will have good food, games, and a Purim spiel (play).

Below are resources to help inspire you.

More scripts

We also have three scripts written by Aaron Eime for spiels put on at Christ Church Jerusalem. We encourage you to see the video version of each play for ideas on set-design and costumes.

Don't have time for a full production? No need to go out all out. You'll have fun with your friends and family just doing a table read of one of the silly scripts.

Whenever we hear the name of evil Haman, we boo and hiss and make noise, often with a gragger (ratchet noisemaker).

Here are two ideas on how to make your own gragger:
