This month’s edition of JPIX is up at Leora’s. Make sure to check it; it’s beautiful.

This shot features Purim costumes in an Antwerp shop window. Purim is next week, from 9 March (sunset) to 10 March (sunset).

On Tuesdays, just post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that contains the color RED and then link to this blog.

  1. How festive! There are a lot of Jews in Antwerp? Is that the heart of the diamond business?

    The costumes do not have the overly commercial Disney look of the ones we see here in the U.S.

  2. Denise and Paz: Thank you.
    Leora: My friends reckon there are 35,000 Jews in Antwerp. According to Wikipedia about 20,000 are Chassidim. Very impressive to walk in the streets of this very Flemish-looking town and see so many black hats.

  3. Since I can spell Purim but know very little about it beyond that I’ll defer to your expertise on these costumes. They’re diverse enough, that’s for certain! And quite well made form the look of it. Not to mention colorful.

    But I will have to educate myself better on the holiday to be able to have more than that to say about them.
