Purim Celebrations of 700 years past


"And on the fourteenth of Adar, for the sake of honor and beauty, young men are glorified and exalted, acting in a manner of insanity and foolishness… One wears a woman’s dress and a necklace about his throat, one acts like one of the fools, with a drum and a dance and joy…"

(R’ Kalonymus ben Kalonymus, Even Bochan, pg. 30)

Have a great day,
