Adar is the sixth month of the Jewish civil calendar, and the twelfth month of the Jewish religious calendar. It usually corresponds to days in February and March, according to the Gregorian calendar.

Purim (the Jewish holiday observed in connection with the foiling of the plan of the Persian minister Haman to have the Jews killed during their foreign captivity, as described in Esther 9 in the Bible) is annually observed in the Western Hemisphere on the 14th day of Adar, which (in 2020) began at sundown on Monday, 9 March, of the Gregorian calendar, and lasted until sundown on Tuesday, 10 March.
