purim day 1

here in jerusalem, we have two days of purim... day 1, today, is for the rest of the country, and day 2, is shushan purim, purim a day later for all walled-cities, including jerusalem.

while i'm taking the day easy, and finishing up a paper so i can celebrate later, aileen's off to the big purim parade near tel aviv. (click on the link, and then play the video in the center of the page). this year's theme is the environment, and will feature floats of both noah's ark and barak obama.
