What kid doesn't like to dress up and masquerade as their
favorite character? At the Home in Netanya, the girls are no different.
Although their lives are just beginning to turn around for the better, they
need little encouragement to don gowns, costumes, wear funny hats and get into
the Purim spirit.
See the house-sisters as they were surprised by being
awakened in the middle of the night by their counselors who personally designed
and created Purim costumes for all the girls, with their help. As they bolted
out from their beds – they fell immediately into the holiday aura.
Dressed in their new masquerade outfits, each girl anxiously
joined the Home's Purim contest. Judges deemed not only originality in costume,
but also - the most attractive smile, the most creative historic and popular
culture figures, and a good sense of humor, too.
It was evident that the girls all wanted to succeed in
something important. Everyone indeed achieved a degree of success in his/her
own field of expertise and met their potential as they paraded before one
another and played their parts perfectly.
