Purim Brings a Party to Pediatrics


Volunteers from the Happy Child Organization, together with the Hadassah Pediatric School decided that laughter was the best remedy—at least for Purim.

Arts and crafts, festive foods, a makeup and hairstyling corner, games and cartoons were scattered throughout the children's wing at Hadassah Ein Kerem.

"We brought the holiday spirit to the hospital where not everyone has a chance to celebrate," said Prof. Eitan Kerem,, Director of Pediatrics.

"The event was an amazing multicultural celebration," said Edna Pinchover, school director. "The Purim is a holiday that permits us all to look at the future without fear, celebrate and rejoice together. It was beautiful to see all ethnic groups join together in this joyful carnival, how wonderful to feel the enjoyment of the children and the pleasure of the cooperative spirit that marks Hadassah. Our thanks to all, and the very well-named Happy Child Organization."
