“Happy Purim!!!!! All Hail All Queens! ##certainty,” Madonna captioned an Instagram selfie. In the picture, the leather corset-wearing 55-year-old singer has her hair in platinum tendrils, falling to her waist. Two dragon figurines are perched on her shoulders.
For another image, in which she’s posing next to a reveler with a Jesus mask over his face, Madonna wrote, “Ive [sic] got a friend in Jesus! #revolutionoflove.”
Purim is an annual Jewish holiday that celebrates the Jewish people’s escape from under the Persian Empire. “Purim is one of the most joyous and fun holidays on the Jewish calendar,” according to Jewish Virtual Holiday. “It commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination.”
In addition to gifting and enjoying a celebratory meal, Jews celebrate Purim by wearing masks and costumes. It’s believed that Italian Jews started the custom of masquerading near the end of the 15th century.
Madonna, who was raised Roman Catholic, converted to Judaism-based Kabbalah in the late 90s.
