Happy Purim from Jerusalem!
March 10, 2017

Happy Purim!

Sunday is the Jewish holiday of Purim, which can be celebrated all over the world - except Jerusalem. Sunday night and Monday, March 13, 2017, is Shushan Purim, which can be celebrated only in Jerusalem (and maybe one or two other places).

What's the difference between the two days? Read more to find out ...

Whether you're celebrating Purim or Shushan Purim, we wish you a very joyous day!

Traditionally, there are four ways to mark this special holiday:

In addition, the custom is for everyone to dress up and make merry, so have fun!

Summer will be here before we know it, so if you’re planning a trip to Jerusalem later this year,

now is the time to book your hotel and discuss an itinerary with one of our tour guides and pick up your copy of Introduction to Jerusalem: A Guide to the Holy City.

In the meantime, enjoy this wonderful holiday, whether you're celebrating Purim, Shushan Purim - or both!

Your Prayer in the Wall

As we wish you the best for the holidays and the coming twelve months, remember that we’re here to deliver your prayers to the Western Wall in Jerusalem for you. (Your prayers are strictly confidential and are deleted from our system as soon as they are delivered to the Wall.)

This is a free service that we consider a privilege to provide. Jewish tradition, however, teaches that prayer and charity, together, have the power to change Divine decrees. So please consider super-charging your prayer with a donation to our charity fund for disabled children in Jerusalem. Your donation, however small, will help provide much needed services, therapy and medications for severely disabled children in Jerusalem.

Chag Same’ach – Happy Purim!

Blessings from Jerusalem,

P.S.Treat yourself to something lasting and finally discover the joy of learning Hebrew...
