Purim in Jerusalem

Text & Picture: Schilling

Loveme’s Hannes Schilling currently lives in Jerusalem and we are happy to share this picture he took in the ‘city of gold’ this year.

Purim is a special jewish holiday where everyone has to get drunk. The tora says, everybody should go crazy and exhausted on this day to get rid of sins and fears. If you go on a walk through the orthodox neighborhoods on this day you almost can’t believe your eyes. Small children, in the age of five years are drinking beers or smoke cigarettes, while others are hunting cats with guns.
