Jewish History

After a respected Jew was falsely accused of stealing the royal curtains from the governor's palace, the entire Jewish community of Prague was in mortal danger.

After miraculous intervention, the real culprit confessed to the crime, sparing the Jews of the city

To commemorate this event, "Purim of the Curtains" was instituted to thank G-d for the miraculous salvation.
