Mori (Rabbi) Michael Shelomo Bar-Ron, from Beth Midrash Ohel Moshe, and author of the book, " Guide for the Noahide ",  joins Tamar and explains where the non-Jewish custom of 'dressing up' on Purim came from, -and you won't like it!!!!  However, Torah law comes first, and he reminds us all that during our long Exile from the Holy Land, we may have adopted customs from the nations of the world that we should not have. You will not look at the costumes for Purim the same way!  Watch his video here.
