Nachlaot Purim Street Party
Thousands gather each year for the most-extravagant street party in Jerusalem - held annually on the day the city observes the festival of Purim. Spread over two streets in the neighborhood of Nachlaot and near the Shuk (Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda Market), thousands of people spend an afternoon showing off their exotic costumes or eyeing the get-up of others, while multiple DJ stations along the route pipe music and a pulsing beat into the open air.
Photographer and filmmaker Judah S. Harris pushed through the crowds during the March 2019 event, gliding a somewhat shaky but eager smartphone camera to where the action is. Watch the video to see how close he gets - almost too close at times - as he surfs his way through the big party!
