Hamantaschen

Purim, celebrated this year on Wednesday evening February 28th through Thursday March 1st, is one of the most fun-filled action packed holidays of the Jewish Year. Purim celebrates the survival of the Jewish community against an ancient Persian Empire plot to annihilate it. And, one way to celebrate is by eating hamantashen, reminiscent of Haman’s 3-cornered hat.

Although Jews began marking the date in the first century, it grew into a popular holiday during the Middle Ages. Today, it is celebrated with food, dancing, festivals and costumes.

How We Celebrate

There are 4 special Mitzvot we do to help celebrate the Purim holiday:

Hear the Megillah – You are encouraged to go to synagogue and hear the whole Megillah or “Book of Esther,” which tells the Purim story. When Haman’s name is mentioned, you should make noise or stomp your feet to blot out his name.

Give to the Needy – One of Purim’s primary themes is Jewish unity, so during this holiday, we take time to help those in need, by giving money or food to those less fortunate.

Send Food Gifts to Friends (Mischloach Manot) – On Purim, we celebrate by sending gifts of food to one another, even strangers.. Sunflower Bakery offers deliciously filled gift food bags to deliver to your friends and others.

Feast –Eat hamantashen! Gather with friends and family and enjoy a wonderful Purim seudah or feast to celebrate the holiday. Don’t forget to bring a beautiful Sunflower Purim platter as a host/hostess gift if invited out!
