Jewish festival of Purim celebrations.Download
© Licensed to London News Pictures. 21/03/2019. London, UK. Orthodox Jewish children in Indian outfits on the streets of Stamford Hill in north London celebrate the festival of Purim - one of the most entertaining Jewish holidays. It commemorates the time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from massacre by Haman. It is customary to hold carnival-like celebrations on Purim, and for groups of men to go round visiting local wealthy men, collecting for their charity.
