Traditional Foods and Recipe Suggestions for This Festive Holiday
Purim is all about the hiding. Esther hid her identity from King Ahashverosh. Haman hid his evil side from the King. And as our tradition teaches, the name of God does not appear in the written account of Purim , because even God is hidden in the Purim story.
Purim is right around the corner! Among the traditions of the holiday is the exchanging of gifts of food with one another.
This past week I had the pleasure of attending the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference. With inspiring speakers, expressions of hope and dreams for a better world, and an unflinching defense for the State of Israel, I felt a deep pride to be a Jew during the only time since Alexander the Great, that Jewish community in the Diaspora was able to partner with the foreign governments—this is historical.
Imagine Purim by the crystal clear and warm waters of the Caribbean Sea.This week not one but two Jewish communities will have the opportunity to do just that, in a modern and multicultural celebration of an ancient Jewish holiday.
