- The festival of Purim is celebrated annually on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar (according to the Jewish Calendar) meaning it falls in either February or March.
- Purim is first and foremost a celebration characterized by wearing masks and costumes and a party mood that takes over the city.
- Guests at The Norman boutique hotel will see the creativity of Tel Avivi’s come alive with a wicked array of costumes and disguises. Street parties and events for both adults and kids are in abundance, it’s simply a case of choosing which is best for you.
- One of the most awaited Purim parties, hosted by the neighbours of Michal Street, is an eccentric example of how seriously Tel Aviv takes Purim, as this tiny and normally quiet one-way street becomes the epicenter of all parties, where costumed locals flock to celebrate and dance to live DJs sets.
- The mainstream, family-friendly Purim street party held in Kikar Hamedina is the focal event featuring performances by popular musicians and a party atmosphere that lasts all day from 11am.
- For something a little off-beat, the spookiest Purim event that returns year after year“the zombie walk” is a sight to behold! Watch the zombies gather on Friday at 9pm on the corner of Ben-Zion Boulevard and King George and roam the city from there.
- The Norman Hotel also hosts a Purim party of its own, in The Library Bar. Themes have ranged from the roaring 20’s to a colour block party and guests are encouraged to join the locals who flock to enjoy the evening’s events .
