Chag Purim in Israel Purim is one of the most widely celebrated festivals in Israel. Purim in Israel is embraced by the whole country, from religious Jews in Jerusalem to secular Jews in Tel Aviv. It is a time of festivity and celebrated far beyond its original religious roots. Purim parties take place across Israel, with Purim street parties with carnival atmospheres taking place in almost every city, town and village in the country. Purim is also a holiday that emphasizes the community and gift giving, not only to your friends and family but to the needy as well. With so much going on, and so much color in the amazing costumes that can be seen, Purim in Israel is a fascinating time to be in the country. Tzedakah donations collected during the months of February & March will go to Alex's Lemonade Stand. Our Lemonade Stand will be up at the Purim Carnival, Sunday March 12, 12pm-3pm. During the week of March 13 the lemonade stand will be in the promenade. We look forward to the children selling lemonade and raising money for cancer awareness.
