The holiday of Purim is represented by an array of objects from Yeshiva University Museum's collection - from rare ceremonial Judaica to popularly themed ephemera. I would like to share several examples with you here today.
Purim Greeting Card Issued by the Jewish Welfare Board Collection of Yeshiva University Museum
This Purim Greeting Card was issued by the Jewish Welfare Board, an offshoot of the Young Men’s Hebrew Association, during the first World War. The Young Men’s Hebrew Association was originally formed to provide hospitality centers and raise funds for the 200,000 Jews active in the war. This postcard was reprinted during World War II.
