As evidenced by Megillat Esther, the Jewish people have a long history with India. Here’s an easy and delicious Indian dish you can make to serve at your Purim (or any!) meal. Serve it alone, over rice, or atop a salad.
Nothing shouts Purim louder than these!
Purim is about a lot of things. It is about the story of Esther. It’s about celebrating the evil decree that never took place. We celebrate by listening to the Purim story, by giving food to our friends and family, by holding a great feast and by giving charity. Along with that, we have little children underfoot, dressed up to the nines, filling their bellies with sugar. Here’s our survival guide:
In honor of Purim, we’ve partnered up with Dov Abramson studios in Israel to give away four copies of their newest Megillat Esther!

In this week’s Torah reading, blessings abound. Yisrael (formerly known as Yaakov) blesses Ephraim and Menashe by laying his hands upon their heads. This week’s Torah Treats features a pair of candy adorned (well manicured might I add!) hands.
In this week’s Parsha, Parshat VaYichi, Jacob blesses his grandsons before he dies. Part of his blessing includes this passage: “The Angel who has redeemed me from all harm, bless the lads. In them may my name be recalled, and the names of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, and may they become teeming multitudes upon the earth.”
