MISS ELAINE SNEIDER

The story of Purim has been
described as an allegory of the in-
destructibility of the Jewish peo-
ple and the eternity of Israel
everywhere, and so, for us, its
celebration has the deepest signi-
ficance. But Purim is also a fes-
tival free of high solemnity, a holi-
day on which we may give way to
full, free fun. Just how we ex-
press our mood of gayety may de-
pend on where we live. Here, one
of the delightful community cus-
toms is the Queen Esther Ball, fre-
quently a masquerade at which
Hamans and Mordecais cheerfully,
participate together.
After the ball is over we can
prolong both the fun and the
Purim celebration with a breakfast
at which we feature traditional
Purim foods. This is a perfect time
for serving the large Hamantas-
chen made with yeast, and natur-
ally for so gay an occasion we
would want extra-rich and extra-
good cakes such as the flaky ones
which are described today.
While these Hamantaschen could
be the drowning glory of our

LETTER BOX

Editor, The Jewish News:
We appreciate the extensive
mention of Herbert Ehrmann's
material in "Felix Frankfurter: A
Tribute" in your issue of Feb. 26.
' However, I am sure you are as
happy as we all are that Mr. Ehr-
mann is very much alive and thriv-
ing. I am sure the adjective "late"
got in by error.
Cordially yours,
Morton Yarmon
Director of Public Relations
American Jewish Committee
(Editor's Note: As Mark Twain
once said after a similar experi-
ence, "The reports of my death
have been greatly exaggerated.")

Here we have suggested a tradi-
tional recipe in which the Nahit
are cooked with honey and cinna-
mon, the spice so beloved in orien-
tal cookery. If you prefer, the
Nahit may be prepared with pow-
dered ginger to taste instead of
the cinnamon. Nahit is the name
we give to the dried legumes
which are also called chick peas,
ceci, or garbanzos, and they repre-
sent the kosher foods which were
the only ones Queen Esther would
eat in the palace of Ahasuerus.
Honey Spiced Nahit may be served
hot as a side dish or cold as a
tidbit. For our breakfast, either
way is suitable. If you wish, you
may also prepare Honey Spiced
Nahit for a meat meal by using
parve margarine.
Since appetites have been stimu-
lated by an evening of fun and
dancing, the after-the-ball break-
fast should be a hearty meal, com-
plete with bagels, cream cheese,
and lox, scrambled eggs, and plates
of smoked fish.

cream, eggs, and salt. Nlix thoroughly
to make a smooth dough. If necessary,
add a little more flour, as the dough
should be just stiff enough to handle.
Cover the bowl, and chill in the refrig-
erator overnight. Next day, roll out
inch thick on a lightly floured board.
Fold into thirds and roll out again.
Fold and roll twice more. The last time
the dough is rolled form it into a
rectangle one-fourth longer than it is
wide. Cut into 12 equal squares. Place
a spoonful of filling near the center
of each, and fold over to form a tri-
angle. Press the edges firmly together,
then tuck them neatly under the dough,
still keeping the shape of a triangle.
Place 2 inches apart on a greased cookie
sheet, and let rise at 85° F. until double

350° F. about 20 minutes, until a rich,
