24 People Owning At Purim

Purim may just be the most fun Jews have in synagogue all year. And these people, in particular, are doing it right.

Purim is the Jews’ closest approximation to Halloween. WIth wine, costumes, and campy reenactments of the “Megillah” (which tells the story of the Jews being saved from the evil Haman’s annihilation plot), God basically insists upon a good time. Here are some Jews letting it all hang out.
