An attendee of Rabbi Hendel Weingarten’s Purim service at Chabad House on Elizabeth Street in East Lansing uses a noisemaker after the name of Haman is read. Purim is a Jewish holiday that celebrates the deliverance of the Jews from an evil plot conceived by Haman, as chronicled in the Megillah, or book of Esther. Rabbi Mordechai Haller read the Megillah to a group including about 15 MSU students who would blot out the name Haman using noisemakers each time it was read.
