Purim, the Jewish holiday that celebrates the triumph of the Jews of Persia over the evil Haman, is a wonderful time to cook with the family — like these easy two-ingredient hamantaschen from Trader Joe’s — and explore fun craft activities.
Whether you celebrate the holiday every year with your Jewish community or want to try it out for the first time at home, these DIY projects will help get you into the joyful holiday spirit. There’s also a Purim tradition of giving mishloach manot, or gift bags filled with food and trinkets, to friends — and these handicrafts can be a delightful addition.
