Joyous Purim celebration

RICHBORO, Pa. (WPVI) -- There was a cast of characters at Ohev Shalom in Richboro, Bucks county Wednesday night for the traditional celebration of Purim.

Clowns, a cat-in-the-hat, and a few minions, along with dozens of families, were on hand to mark the festival.

Purim is one of the most joyous holidays on the Jewish calendar.

It commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination.
