When is Purim in 2018, 2019, 2020?

When is Purim in 2018, 2019, 2020?


The holiday of Purim falls on the Hebrew calendar date of Adar 14. Here are the coinciding secular dates for the upcoming years:

Purim 2018 falls out on:   February 28- March 1

2019:   March 20-21

2020:   March 9-10

Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus holiday observances begin at sunset of the first secular date listed (with the Purim Night Megillah reading taking place that evening), and the holiday concludes at nightfall the following day.

Debbie March 1, 2015

Does anyone realize that P.M. Netanyahu is coming to the U.S. to plea for his people against Iran (the evil Haman) on the week of Purim? Is that God or what?

It's not what!!!!! Reply

For such a time as this Praise God for Esther, and her courage saved the Jewish people from that wicked Haman. God can use anyone to do his will and see that the Messiah would come as promised. Satan has been trying to hinder the plan of God, but through his providence God had this great woman of God in the kingdom for such a time as this. May we be like her today, and see that Israel is saved from all of their enemies. Reply

Esther Let us not forget that since the time of Esther, the Persians have been trying to kill the Jews. And what do we call the Persians today... the Iranians. May G-d preserve us all. Reply

Jewish feasts and festivals I am a Christian but I find that celebrating the Jewish festivals really enriches my own faith. Well done Israel, and shalom Reply
