Merry Purim to All

I don’t know where this picture came from, but it’s doing the email rounds. If anyone has any background on who took it, pass the word to me and I’ll give due attribution (and either a high five or an air-high five, depending who you are). It reminds me of my yeshiva, which was in a tiny Sephardic synagogue in Jerusalem. One day they bought a reel of red-and-green plastic lights attached by green wire. They strung it around the ark, not realizing at all that they were meant to be hung on a Christmas tree.
