Megillah - Scroll of Esther, Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Israel

A principal tradition of Purim is the reading of the Megillah (Book of Esther) during a synagogue service. When the Megillah is read, it is customary to make noise by booing, hissing, or stamping one’s feet to drown out Haman’s name. You can also twirl a traditional noisemaker, called a gragger.
