Think you know the story of Purim? Everyone can use a little brush up on the saga of Esther, her husband the king, and the foiled plot to massacre the kingdom's Jews. The Global Jewish Channel (J-TV) on Monday released on Facebook a retelling of the Purim story through text messages.

The creative presentation casts the timeless characters in terms of slang, emojis, and some brilliantly chosen GIFs.
