SCRANTON — In Lackawanna County, children celebrated Purim at the Jewish Community Center.

The kids were treated to a carnival that included games, costumes, as well as plenty of treats.

Purim commemorates the defeat of a plot to exterminate the Jews in Persia.

According to the scripture, Esther told the king of the villain Haman’s plot to destroy her people and the Jews were saved.
