Purim, which begins this year on the evening of March 16, is widely considered the most joyous holiday on the Jewish calendar. One way of manifesting that joy is by dressing up in costume, a tradition that has been around since the Renaissance.

So, what are you wearing this Purim?

Send a photo of you in your Purim finery to newsdesk@pittsburghjewishchronicle.org, and write “Purim costume” in the subject line. Please include your name and town. If sending photos of your children, please include their age. Your photos may be included in a March 11 photo spread in the Chronicle.

Photos of past Purim costumes are also welcome. PJC
