Upside-Down Holiday

"Vanahafochu!" This is Purim's most important word. It means: "And everything was turned upside down!" That is the story and the message of Purim. The people who were victims became victors; the servant became the master; the Jewish girl became a queen.

Esther's name means "hidden" in Hebrew. So what are we being told? That there are two sides to everything -- the side we see and the side we don't.

Find the hidden Purim word. What do the letters in the circles spell?

On Purim, we read

the whole: __ __ O __ __ __ __ __

The Color of STOP!: O __ __

Purim's bad guy: __ O __ __ __

The color of GO!: O__ __ __ __

Opposite of small: __ __ O

Purim's queen: O__ __ __ __ __

The best Jewish

holiday in Adar!: __ __O __ __
