Purim Katan


To change the topic for one day: Purim Katan is observed on the 14th day of the month of Adar I, the day which would have been Purim had the year been a non-leap year. That is today (as I write this, not as you read it), Wednesday February 20. The next day is Shushan Purim Katan, which would have been Shushan Purim had this been a non-leap year.

To celebrate these days of would-be Purim, we increase our meals and invite guests, celebrating the miracle of Purim.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 697:1; Mishneh Berurah 697:5)

Have a great day,
