75 Unique and Thoughtful Purim Greetings to Spread Joy on the Jewish Holiday

Purim is a holiday celebrating the survival of the Jewish people. It's a joyful spring holiday, with traditions that include listening to the reading of the Purim story, giving to charity, consuming delicious food and drinks, and dressing up in Purim costumes. People also mark the holiday by exchanging Purim gifts, which often consist of three-sided pastries known as Hamantaschen, and other treats. If you're wondering what the best Purim greetings might be or what you should use as a Purim caption on social media, we've got plenty of ideas for you right here.

You may be familiar with the story of Purim recounted in The Scroll of Esther, which details how the queen Esther and her cousin Mordecai stopped a plot by the king's prime minister to kill all the Jewish people in the land. The king ultimately issued a decree which allowed the Jewish people to defend themselves against their enemies, and that is what Purim celebrates. This year, Purim begins at sundown on Monday, March 6, 2023 and ends the evening of Tuesday, March 7, 2023. It's about a month before Passover, another important Jewish holiday.

These Purim greetings are perfect for writing in a card to send along with your Purim baskets, or simply sending to loved ones in a text or email. Many of them also make perfect captions for a picture of your Purim celebration that you want to share on social media.
