On February 23, 2013, the children of Israel will celebrate the redemption of the Jewish people with the holiday of Purim. The Israel Today offices are abuzz with activity, as we begin our preparations to help Israel’s children celebrate this festive holiday.
In the wake of Syrian unrest, Israel's residents are scrambling to get their government-distributed gas masks. A month before the festival of Purim, Israeli children are learning to don another costume.
Israeli children look forward to Purim all year. Dressing up and making noise are important parts of the holiday.
