Holidays

 

Throughout the year we work to strengthen our relationships with one another and our commitment to ensuring that Hillel at The University of Oklahoma remains an anchor in changing times. We strive to create a pluralistic environment in which students feel safe, supported, and enriched to better themselves, their community, and the world. Hillel offers programs, educational opportunities, services, and more on all major and many minor Jewish holidays. We also work closely with our local congregations to ensure that students and the community are able to experience their offerings as well.

We will also update this page with our events and with links to our local congregations' services and events around the upcoming holidays.

Purim

Purim , or the Feast of Lots, is a joyous holiday that recounts the saving of the Jews from a threatened massacre during the Persian period (539-330 BCE). The story of Purim is recounted in the Book of Esther, whose eponymous heroine plays the leading role in saving her people. The holiday is traditionally celebrated with wild abandon and with the giving of gifts to friends and the poor.

        Purim 2022 begins on Wednesday night, March 16, and continues through Thursday, March 17, (extending through Friday in Jerusalem).
