Shushan Purim on the Tell

Posted on Updated on

Today, on the holiday of Shushan Purim, the Shai Family enjoyed some time on the tell!  The holiday of Purim is the celebration surrounding the story of the Scroll of Esther, which tells the story of how Queen Esther and her uncle Mordechai undermined an evil plan to wipe out all of the Jewish people living in the Persian Empire, after the exile of the first temple.  the holiday is celebrated on two separate days – one for unwalled cities, and the other one for walled cities – like Tel Burna!

Anyway, the tell is in good condition, despite the heavy rains of this winter – here are some pics of the wall, with some great models in front of them!
