TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED years ago, a Persian king named Haman tried to kill all the Jews. Thankfully, we survived. And, at the end of February 2018 A.D., we will celebrate our survival during the holiday of Purim. The Megillah (Book of Esther) will be read. Groggers (noisemakers) will shake. And we will eat triangular cookies called Hamentaschen (in Yiddish, Hamantaschen literally translates to “Haman’s pockets”). “Cookies?” you say. Yes, for some, Hamentaschen are meant to be cookie-like.
