INFOGRAPHIC: All About Hamentashen!
All across the world, people will soon be celebrating the joyous holiday of Purim. Like many Jewish holidays, there is also a food item that carries great significance. While Jews enjoy munching on a couple of Latkes and a Jelly Doughnut on Chanukah, we relish eating the seemingly hundreds of variations of Hamentashen that are available in your local grocery, bakery, or even home oven!
And yet, did you know that these yummy treats are not typically referred to as Hamentashen in of all places The Holy Land!?!?
In Israel, they are called Oznei Haman (Hebrew: אוזני המן), which is Hebrew for “Haman’s ears” in reference to our defeated enemy’s ears. And so, thanks to the fine folks of Mishpacha Magazine for these statistics, you can enjoy some fun facts and learn all about Hamentashen!
