The Main Purim Parade – The Adloyadah
Did you know that the word Adloyadah is the term used to refer to a Purim parade. The word is derived from the Hebrew phrase – Ad-lo-yo-day-ah – “until one no longer knows”. The name is derived from the rabbinic saying in the Talmud that one should revel on Purim by drinking “until one no longer knows” (ad de-lo yaday-ah).
These are just some of the Purim parades regularly held across the country:
Holon Adloyadah Purim Parade
The Holon Adloyadah Purim parade is one of the most impressive Purim parades that take place. It’s a massive carnival held in the city of Holon, south of Tel Aviv. The event is great fun for kids and adults alike.
The parade starts on Sokolov Street and ends at the corner of Weizmann and Golomb Streets. The Holon Adloyadah includes exhibits, dancers, bands, orchestras, drummers, street performers, acrobats and more.
