Pupils will be able to act out the story of Purim, dressing up as King Ahasuerus, Queen Esther and the evil Haman! Pupils will take part in a 'mock' Purim service inside Manchester's oldest surviving synagogue and will learn about and try on various sacred items of clothing (kippah, tallit, teffilin). By the end pupils will have even learnt to write their name in Hebrew!
