“Ultra-Orthodox Jewish children wearing costumes for the holiday of Purim walk in Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim neighborhood on March 13.”

“The carnival-like Purim holiday is celebrated with parades and costume parties to commemorate the deliverance of the Jewish people from a plot to exterminate them in the ancient Persian Empire 2,500 years ago, as recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther.”
