PURIM in JERUSALEM

PARTY IN THE PARK

Every Purim the City of Jerusalem hosts a celebration in the Safra Square Park at the municipal building complex on Jaffa Road. At the time of Mordechai and Esther, “walled cities,” such as Susa the capital of Persia, had an extra day of celebration (see Esther 9:18), so Jerusalem is one big party on the second day of Purim.  Kids, families, costumes, music, parties everywhere!

I took these pictures during the party of March, 2014 – Adar B 5774. At the time folks were voting for their favorite pics. Enjoy!
