Purim Celebrations of 1000 years ago


"On the days of Purim, the global custom is for young men to make an image of Haman and suspend it from the rooftops for four or five days, and then on Purim to make a bonfire and throw the image into it. They stand around it and sing, and they have a ring suspended above the fire, and people jump [through it] from one side of the fire to the other."

(R’ Natan baal ha’Aruch, Aruch, שוור)

Have a great day,
