Introduction to Purim

Purim is a jubilant Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction, as recounted in the Book of Esther. Traditionally celebrated with costumes, the reading of the Megillah (the Scroll of Esther), gift-giving, and feasting, Purim is a time of joy, merriment, and gratitude. It invites people of all ages to engage in celebrations marked by revelry and laughter, often accompanied by playful activities and performative storytelling.

Piccles: A New Way to Celebrate Purim

Piccles introduces a fresh, digital dimension to Purim festivities. This user-friendly drawing tool invites people to craft whimsical and heartwarming pictures that resonate with the holiday's spirit. Piccles captures the essence of Purim through the power of communal creativity and shared joy. It's a celebration of freedom and salvation that can be expressed through the simple, collective art form, making digital art a meaningful and contemporary extension of Purim's traditions.

Connecting Purim with Piccles

Piccles provides a unique venue for Purim participants to illustrate cherished aspects of the holiday. They can draw scenes from the story of Esther, create digital masks or graggers, and even share illustrations of their favorite Purim treats. Piccles can be used during the Purim party where everyone can participate in a group activity to draw their happiest Purim memory, or drawing challenges can be themed around messages of courage and triumph. Sharing these drawings can foster a sense of community and connection, embodying Purim's spirit in an innovative, interactive way.
