Hamentaschen are a big hit, Haman hooted at annual Purim party

United Hebrew Congregation’s annual Purim party proved a rousing success, with hamentaschen, hats, groggers and hilarity for all. Student Rabbi Aaron Rozovsky and helpers read the whole Megillah.

Sunday school students boxed up take-home hamentaschen, fruit and candy for the guests and others who couldn’t make it to Temple!
