Where to Find Purim Parades and Fun in Israel

Right now, Jewish families around the world are celebrating one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar: Purim! During this celebration, Jews remember the biblical story of brave Esther, who saved her people from fatal harm by trusting in God. Jews dress up in costume, deliver baskets of food and drink to friends, host parties, and . . . watch parades!

Wonder Woman Gal Gadot and Golden State Warriors forward Omri Casspi will put in an appearance at the city of Holon’s 26th annual Adloyada Purim Parade on March 1 – not in the flesh, but among the many professionally crafted floats, puppets and giant exhibits highlighting the parade.

Stepping off at noon, the Holon Adloyada is the biggest and best-known of Israel’s Purim parades taking place across the country, some on Purim itself (March 1 this year) and others on March 2, when Jerusalem celebrates Purim.

All the Holon Adloyada creations will be displayed after the parade through Sunday, March 4, at the Holon Mediatheque.
