Purim is a holiday for merriment, charity, and dressing up! Here are our Top 5 Costumes in Israel for 2021!
01 Wonder Woman
After seeing Gal Gadot play Wonder Woman, it's not surprising that this is a popular Israeli costume. Powerful, strong Israeli woman? Yes, we all want to be that! Purim is the perfect time to dress up as Wonder Woman in the spirit of Gal Gadot, of course.
02 Queen Esther
While she is a different kind of Wonder Woman, Queen Esther is a top costume among many girls and women! She represents courage and perseverance in the face of evil, and so yeah, we basically all want to be her. Plus, it's in the spirit of Purim to dress up as Queen Esther!
03 Donald Trump
It's been a whirlwind of a year politically, and so Donald Trump definitely makes the list. He has been involved in Middle Eastern politics, so whether you love him or hate him, he's a character for sure and therefore makes for a great Purim costume!
04 Something related to Coronavirus
OK, we have all heard enough about Corona. But it still makes for a great costume...whether you're going as hand sanitizer, one giant mask, a doctor or nurse, or a replica of the virus itself, we are all certainly ready to move past this time and hope for lighter and virus-free days. But it was the pandemic that shook the century, so it's not like we can ignore it! Fair play for costumes.
Now a strong Jewish male leader! It's common for boys or men to dress up as figures from the Torah or Jewish history, and Moses is a classic, given his major role in Judaism. But you could also go as Mordechai (Esther's cousin), Noah from Noah's Ark, King David -- lots of great options! The important thing is to have fun with it!
