Purim in Israel

This is the first time that I was able to celebrate Purim for two days!  Since my sister lives in a suburb of Jerusalem, she celebrated Shushan Purim on Monday.  But I persuaded her to go with me to Bnei Brak on Sunday to enjoy everybody else's Purim, too.  It was fun to walk around and see all the kids in costumes - also the yeshiva boys acting a little crazy :)  We went into Jerusalem on Monday morning also and saw similar activities and costumes, before coming home and having our Purim meal with her family.

So this post is mostly Purim costumes - people on the street are just passersby; kids inside are my sister's grandchildren.  Enjoy!

Here is my second post of photos from my trip to Israel.  The theme today is Jerusalem.  The city is made up of many parts - the history, the land, the architecture, the people.  I spent a lot of time on this visit walking the streets of Jerusalem and it's suburbs and I enjoyed getting better acquainted with it.  I hope you enjoy sharing the view with me :)

Next time (iy"h):  Purim pics!
