Purim, Passover, Ressurection Day and Haman’s Hats (Hamantashen)

DSCN4456

 

Our Ladies Bible Study has been studying Esther the past few months and last week I made Haman’s Hats or Hamantashen for our last meeting. We’re just a few weeks past Purim also, the remembrance of Esther and Mordechai’s bold moves to save the Jewish People, so it was pretty good timing. I made mine with a sweet pastry and fig butter…yummy! Their shape comes from the idea that Haman wore a three-cornered hat and eating his hat symbolizes his destruction. More about this cookie HERE. They’re really fun to make and kids would love shaping the hats. :>

 

And if you’re looking for more Resurrection Day ideas, HERE’S a post from last year:

So much is happening this week:

 

SUNDAY was Palm Sunday, when Jesus Christ entered Jerusalem, to the cheers of the crowds. TODAY begins the remembrance of the Passover, when the lives of those who placed the sacrificial blood over their doorways were spared, with a Seder meal.

 

“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.
This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD–a lasting ordinance.” Exodus 12:13-14

 

FRIDAY we remember Christ’s horrible and cruel death, and SUNDAY we will CELEBRATE His RESURRECTION. His LIFE brings us LIFE. He paid the price for MY sins, YOUR sins, ALL of our sins. Choosing to repent of my sins, receive His forgiveness and mercy and follow Him, was the BEST choice I EVER made!

 

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” ~Isaiah 53:5

 

 

 

And now onto the Haman’s Hats:
