Happy Faces of Purim

Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman, a story recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther (Megillat Esther).
One of the main traditions of this holiday is fancy-dress parties and various carnivals. Fairies, butterflies and spidermen are ordinary in the streets of Beer Sheva on this day. Both adults and children participate in the holiday. In fancy dresses they study and work and simply have fun..
