Answer to Anonymous: Answer To Anonymous: Very Good Question about why do we hamentashen shaped as haman's Hat when Haman was a evil person. I had a number of people that asked me the same question. The Answer is that even if Haman was evil we try to Remember him.(not in a good way like he try to honer him) Have A Good Week! Reply

hamentashen When I was growing up in Roxbury, Ma. in the late 40's the hamentashen size was double the size I see the poppy seed but long for the days of the larger size. Had a neighbor that used to make them, awesome...also my grandmother worked at the Aperian Plaza & was a baker...yum Reply

Purim Though I was raised catholic I had many Jewish friends who would share hamantashen with me. It has been over 30 years since I have been able sample them. But would like to thank you for the video. and to wish you all a Happy Purim. Reply

tasting those delicious hamantaschen it would be a bigger sanctification of G-d's name if a loud blessing would be made. Thanx for the enjoyable entertainment! Reply

Haman was evil so why do we eat the hat of an evil man on Purim? Reply

We don't eat the hat, the shape is representative of the ears. Reply
