Dancing In The Street As Governor Palin Arrives In Israel





 

Governor Palin is on her way to Israel and will be arriving later Sunday afternoon. The Jerusalem post reports:

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is set to arrive in Israel for the first time on Sunday afternoon.

Palin will tour Jerusalem and Nazareth and have dinner with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu at his official residence in Jerusalem on Monday evening. Palin will be arriving from India, where she delivered an address on Saturday.

She will be returning to the United States on Tuesday morning.

Upon Governor Palin’s arrival Israelis will be celebrating the festivities of Purim.

Purim is the day Jews celebrate the story of Esther. It’s a very festive day. Kids dress up and food gifts are distributed to family and friends. People are very joyous and its common to see lots of singing and dancing in the streets. It’s customary to drink lots of wine on Purim. It is also a day of giving a lot of money to charity.

Everywhere in the world, including most of Israel, Purim began at sundown on Saturday night and ends after sundown on Sunday night.

In Jerusalem however, Purim takes place one day later and begins at sundown Sunday and ends after sundown Monday.

Governor Palin will join Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for dinner in Jerusalem on Monday evening; The Purim dinner!
