WONDER WOMAN is a popular celebrity in our home. Gorgeous Israeli actress Gal Gadot and the legendary super-heroine character she plays continue to make headlines around the globe, with talks of a sequel to the hit movie in the cards soon. Between my husband and me, our 11-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter, in our home you either want to be Wonder Woman, or you want to meet her – or both.

The first time I spotted a live “superhero” in Israel was in the week leading up to the festival of Purim. What are the chances of you spotting a woman dressed as Batwoman sitting in a coffee shop in your hometown? A hairdresser attending to a client while wearing his Superman outfit or the teller at the supermarket donning a clown mask? Not something I’d ever encountered in South Africa. But the festival of Purim is a serious business in Israel, seemingly for people of all ages.
