It’s a festive time in Israel, a time of celebration and redemption. We at the Israel Today office are busy preparing to help Ethiopian-Israeli children celebrate their first Purim as Israeli citizens. But we need your help to make sure these precious children have a happy holiday.
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.
