Purim is the only Jewish holiday that is observed on two different days, depending on one’s location. The residents of Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) and other walled cities celebrate on the fifteenth of Adar, while the rest of the world celebrates on the fourteenth of Adar. In establishing the holiday of Purim, Esther wanted to guarantee that the lesson of the holiday would not be forgotten. In her time, the Children of Israel had forsaken Yerushalayim. Celebrating in Yerushalayim on a different day highlights its special status and its eternal connection to the People of Israel.
