Adar is a Hebrew name that means “noble,” “exalted,” or “high.” In the Jewish calendar, the month of Adar is the month in which the holiday of Purim is celebrated, which commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in Persia from a plot to destroy them. The name Adar is a reminder of the joy and celebration that accompanies Purim, as it is a time of year when Jews come together to feast, drink, and share gifts with one another.
