This picture was taken in 1934 in Tel Aviv. Is shows a young woman participating in the Purim Celebration. She is playing the part of Queen Esther. I really do not know much about the Purim Celebration, and hope someone can tell us more.


  1. Purim occurs in late February or March each year and celebrates the events in the Biblical Book of Esther. here's a good summary of the events, and observances.

  2. Thank you for the picture, and Thank you, John, for the background info on "Purim."
