Purim

Today is Purim...well, actually, it began yesterday @ sunset.
We try to celebrate holidays with the kiddos...so, that they learn about different culture, etc.
So, today...they had the story of Esther read to them several times.
They watched the Veggie Tales Esther video.
And I made some Challah bread. I didn't have time to make hamentaschen. Maybe next year!
Here we are rolling the dough...getting ready to braid it!

Our braided bread.
All done!
Reading the Esther story and eating our challah bread. They also learned about yelling whenever Haman's name is read...as to blot out his name! That's what they do when the story is read in the synagogues!
