Any Color Hassid, As Long As He's Black
I saw this Purim costume leaflet, at a the blog "A Mother in Israel" who adequately focused on the fact that the girls faces had been erased. However, I couldn't help but notice something else. These kids really have very few choices of costumes. They can dress up as: A black Hassid, A white Hassid, A black and gold Hassid, and a White and gold Hassid. This is clearly a tough choice. The next thing I notice is that the girls can only choose from Rivka and Rahel - what happened to Leah and Sarah? are they not frum enough?
