About The Purim Mitzvahs - Teth Besh Set

Purim is a joyous festival that celebrates saving the Jews from enemies who wished to destroy them. The Book of Esther tells of how “the very day on which the enemies of the Jews had expected to get them in their power, the opposite happened, and the Jews got their enemies in their power” (9:1). The phrase “the opposite happened” has become one of the central themes of Purim. Thus, the stamps in this Purim mitzvahs series are reversed, and for the first time in Israel’s history, the tabs are attached at the top of the stamps rather than to the bottom.
