JUF Book Buddies is popping up at book stores all over Chicagoland on Feb. 26, with stories, songs and crafts to celebrate Purim – the story of Queen Esther, who used her intelligence to defeat the brute Haman and bring peace to the land. This is the holiday when kids have fun putting on masks and playing the evil Haman or the beautiful Esther or the loyal Mordecai.
