Israel: School celebrates Purim with migrant students in Tel Aviv

Israel, Tel Aviv
February 27, 2018 at 13:53 GMT -00:00 · Published

Migrants were joined by their children in celebrating the Jewish holiday of Purim at the Bialik-Rogozin School in southern Tel Aviv on Tuesday.

At the Bialik-Rogozin School, migrant and refugee children study alongside Israelis. Among some 1,150 pupils attending the school, nearly all reportedly have a low house-hold income.

Philippine migrant and parent of two children attending the Bialik Rogozin School noted that there are pupils of "different nations" and "I think they've adapted already to the situation here."

Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people from Haman, as recounted in the Book of Esther.

En este colegio los hijos de los inmigrantes y los refugiados estudian junto a los israelíes. De unos 1.150 alumnos, casi todos tienen un bajo ingreso familiar. Los niños celebran Purim dos días antes, asistiendo disfrazados a la escuela.

“Hay alumnos de diferentes naciones que ya se han adaptado a la vida en Israel", dijo una de las madres de los niños inmigrantes. Purim es una fiesta judía que conmemora la salvación del pueblo judío de Amán, según el Libro de Ester.
