Purim commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination.  Some consider it one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar.

It is up to each faculty member to decide whether or not to assign a reading day for classes held on a Jewish holiday. Students should refer to their course syllabus or contact their instructor for guidance.
