This is an archive of prayers and song composed for or relevant to Purim Qatan.

During leap years in the rabbinic Jewish calendar, Purim falls on the second month of Adar (otherwise known as Adar bet). The 14th of the first month of Adar (Adar Alef) is then called Purim Qatan (“Little Purim”) and the 15th is Shushan Purim Qatan, for which there are no set observances.

A leap year in the Jewish calendar occurs seven times in the 19-year Metonic cycle, namely, in years 3, 6, 8, 11, 14, 17, and 19 of the cycle. This means that a leap month is added every two to three years.
