When was Purim in 2008?

Purim in 2008 started on Friday, the 21st of March (21/3/2008) and continued for 2 days until Saturday, the 22nd of March.

How are Purim dates determined?

Purim is celebrated annually according to the Hebrew calendar on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar (and on Adar II in Hebrew leap years that take place every 2 to 3 years).

In cities that were protected by a surrounding wall at the time of the Biblical Joshua, Purim is instead celebrated on the 15th of the month of Adar on what is known as Shushan Purim. Today, only Jerusalem and a few other cities celebrate Purim on the 15th of Adar.

When did Purim celebrations begin in 2008?

Note that in the Jewish calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Jews celebrated Purim on the sunset of Thursday, the 20th of March.
