This photo depicts a banquet seen in a religious school during the Purim celebrations in the ultra religious neighborhood of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem on march 2nd 2018. Mea Shearim is a very closed neighborhood, not easy to access and to photograph, where religious people lived apart from the rest of the israeli society in a very strong community life. Ultra orthodox people are now almost one million people in Israel.
