Saturday, February 4 at 11am
A group of kittens celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim by baking hamantaschen, delivering treats to their friends and neighbors, wearing costumes and parading, acting out the story of Queen Esther and Haman, and playing carnival games. The book includes an explanation of the Purim custom of giving mishlo'ach manot, small gifts of food to family, friends, and those in need. It also includes instructions for a mishlo'ach manot craft–a box to hold the Purim goodies.
