Watch: Purim Tishes In Jerusalem, Megilla Reading At Rachel’s Tomb


JERUSALEM (VINnews) — For the first time in a year, many chasidic groups conducted a  Tish (table gathering) honoring Purim. The tishes took place in Jerusalem Sunday, which was the main day of celebration in Jerusalem, while in other parts of Israel they took place Friday.

One of the main tishes with thousands of chasidim took place with the Gerer Rebbe, who has strictly ordered all of his chasidim who have not suffered from coronavirus to vaccinate. This was the first tish in a year for Gerer chasidim with their rebbe.
