How to celebrate Purim?

How to celebrate Purim?

Chag Purim Sameach! Happy Purim! On this holiday, we celebrate by dressing up in fancy dress, since King Ahashverosh used to love costume parties. We tell the story by reading the Scroll of Esther (Megillat Esther) and putting on plays called 'purim spiels', making noise when we hear the More…name Haman (the villain) and cheering when we hear the name Mordechai (the hero). We enjoy a drink, snack on three-cornered pastries with sweet fillings called 'oznei haman' or 'hamentashen' and we give each other gifts called 'mishloach manot.'

Verbs in Hebrew- How to Parse - wayyiqtol ?

Verbs in Hebrew- How to Parse - wayyiqtol ?

Parsing the Wayyiqtol (vayyiqtol). The Wayyiqtol form is also known as a 'prefix conjugation' because the subject pronoun of the verb is attached to the basic form as a prefix. In fact, the Wayyiqtol form is identical to the Yiqtol form with a prefixed conjunction ו. The Wayyiqtol form is used as the regular narrative past tense in Biblical Hebrew prose, expressing the main line of action in a past tense narrative, so it is usually translated with the English simple past. We may translate the Wayyiqtol ו into English ('and,' 'so,' 'then,' etc.).
