Megillat Esther describes a topsy turvy world — something we can all relate to after the past year! Delve into this idea with the sheet “The World Turned Upside Down: Ve’na’hafoch Hu.” If you would like to study this sheet with a chavruta, join our Chavruta Roulette event on Monday, February 22 at 8pm EST.

Looking for great Purim materials? Here are some highlights from our new collection of Purim Resources for Educators:
Examine the mitzvah of Matanot L’evyonim (gifts to the poor) in “Joy and Generosity: Giving on Purim.”
For a fun and educational way to explore the Megillah, take your students on a Megillah scavenger hunt.
Strengthen your students’ independent learning skills with “Purim Perspectives: What's the Story?”
Finally, don’t forget to shake your phone to use the Sefaria app’s built-in grogger. It pairs well with Sefaria’s most fun-filled text, the Emoji Megillah!
