A Jewish child enters a Purim costume contest dressed as Elor Azariya, an Israeli
soldier who murdered an unarmed and injured Palestinian lying on the ground.
Purim was celebrated by Jews the world over from the evening of Saturday, March 11th until the following evening of Sunday, March 12th. Most gentiles know little to nothing about Purim except that cookies are baked and children dress up in colorful costumes. This post will explain a little bit about Purim and its obligations with photos and screenshots taken from pages 47 to 54 of Alexander McCaul’s book, The old paths. We highly recommend reading the essay No. VII. The Feast of Purim in it.
