Purim Craft: Two Minute Grogger

Most frequently, the Book of Esther is accounted in both evening and morning services on the 14th of Adar. Whether in traditional readings or various attempts at theatrically, satirically, humorously, and/or otherwise creatively depicting the story in a parody form to make the day more memorable and lighthearted. These noisemakers, otherwise known as groggers, are very much integrated as part of Jewish culture today dating back to 13th century France and Germany.

Today, one can even receive the account of Purim and the megillah of Esther through text messages and use groggers in your own home each time Haman’s name comes up. Watch this video for tips on making groggers from ordinary, household ingredients.
