Esther/Vashti Purim Flags

Ma'yan

Wave your flag and ring your bells for the courageous women in the Purim story! Ma'yan has produced a beautiful flag to be waved in the synagogue when Esther's and Vashti's names are mentioned during the reading of the Megillah (Book of Esther). Just as graggers drown out the villain,Haman's name, these flags celebrate the triumphs of the Purim heroines. Flags can be ordered from Mayan, infomayan@mayan.org. Special bulk rates available for groups.
