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.
1. This festive-looking dude keeping the drank flowing.
5. This goofy guy clowning it up at synagogue.
6. This diligent fellow on bottomless wine duty.
On Purim, Jews are biblically obligated to “drink until they can’t distinguish between “cursed is Haman” and “blessed is Mordechai.” You know how we do.
7. This young Hassidic guy busting a move in Mordechai’s honor.

9. This guy, who peaked a little early during the Megillah reading.
10. These guys broing out.
Dude, Mordechai and Esther were soooo baller.
