Purim is a Jewish holiday that has its roots in the biblical Book of Esther. It is supposed to be celebrated with feasting, maybe that's why it is so popular among Jews around the world. The most obvious way of celebrating it nowadays is that people are dressing up: kids at school, youngsters at parties and grown-ups at company events.
For the MyHeritage Purim party 2009 everyone dressed up as well and our theme was "superheroes". So we dressed up as fantasy heroes from the likes of Batman, Roman gods, Zarra (the female Zorro), Kermit & Miss Piggy, to super cache, super chicken and a super family tree. The costume competition went into a tie break between the super photo page (see picture) and the ToDos slayer together with the invisible power translator. The latter ones were victorious.
Besides the food and feasting, there was also some...
karaoke singing that revealed some really talented stars among the team. Turn up your speakers and listen to our very own Anna give an amazing rock performance and see Noam and Tehila singing White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane.
Here are some more fun moments from that evening, and you can find all photos from the company party on our MyHeritage family site:
