Purim has its own special cookie, called a hamantaschen, which has three corners just like Haman's hat. Together with your children, watch the Shalom Sesame videos to learn about Purim and the tradition of baking hamantaschen, then try some of the discussion ideas and activities recommended by Reform Jewish educators.
In this sneeze-filled episode, we find the magical Sparks Gabi and Rafi fighting off their own colds while they help the Plony family realize that Grandpa needs cheering up in the hospital. Gabi’s sniffles manage to misdirect her magic to hilarious effect. A rainstorm of chicken soup and a flock of quacking ducks eventually persuade the family to visit Grandpa.
