For the young patients of the Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel, this Purim holiday was out of this world. Thanks to two volunteer window washers who dressed up as superheroes, the sick children were treated to a fantastic surprise: Spiderman dangling from ropes outside the hospital’s windows.

The children and their families could not participate in celebrations outdoors, so hospital staff swooped in to the rescue and brought the fun to them.
