The eye-catching pastry features the bakery's signature sweet Hamantaschen dough, twisted with a rainbow of colors. The bakery also has a wide selection of traditional Hamantaschen.
This year, Purim is celebrated on March 11 and 12, and commemorates a time when Esther saved the Jewish people living in Persia from extinction by Haman, as told in the Book of Esther.
