Stained Glass Window - Purim

This window has recently been completed and will be installed soon in a Kiryat Gat Synagogue (in Israel.) The design depicts Purim, the Jewish holiday celebrating salvation of the Persian Jews by Queen Ester and her (conniving) uncle Mordechai. In the design we see the Purim scroll, a mishloach manot (Purim gift basket), a cup of wine and 2 raashanim - noisemakers and rattles that are used during the traditional scroll reading.
