Jerusalem - Neturei Karta: Dressing up For Purim As Soldiers Forbidden
Jerusalem - The Neturei Karta faction has come out against the custom - common among ultra-Orthodox boys - of dressing up as soldiers on Purim, and warned that such costumes were even worse that those of Christian priests.
In pamphlets distributed among their public, the stream’s leaders urged their followers not to masquerade as policemen, soldiers, rescue workers, ZAKA crew or other forms of national service, and avoid wearing “impure symbols.”
In an article titled “On Purim I Do Not Wear Zionist Outfits,” they wrote: Would anyone wear the clothes of pagan priests? Let alone the clothes of those who serve the heretical monstrosity that descended from Israel.”
The article went on to say that, “The offspring of God, the king of kings do not wear the clothes of the Zionist Amalek… also on Purim one must not wear a garment adorned with words that are insulting to the leader and the congregation.”
