Purim In Hong Kong


While Esther and Mordechai might fail to make an appearance at Ohel Leah this year, our contemporary costumes reflect our experience, our adaptability and creativity as a people, as well as the ease of availability of costumes in Hong Kong. I walk inside and up the stairs to the women’s gallery where I make my way through the crowd to take in the scene from the most advantageous point. As the blessings are recited, I scan the boisterous crowd for my own children, hats already askew and costumes stained and sticky from the sweets in their hands. I wonder if this is a story they will tell and retell to their own children.

    I love this! It brings back my own Purim memories in the US, where my dad made me a towering princes hat that I struggled to keep on each year. I'm so relieved to hear that the Disney princess phase peters out by age 7. Phew!
