Children of foreign workers and asylum seekers joined Israeli children in dressing up for Purim on Tuesday, as schools countrywide celebrated the upcoming Jewish holiday.

In costumes ranging from princesses to policemen, students at the Bialik Rogozin school in Tel Aviv, watched shows in celebration of the Jews' salvation from genocide in ancient Persia, as recounted in the Book of Esther.
