Purim Sweets

By IDA OLSON

Purim is that special time,
When a certain style becomes the fashion.
And we, so lovingly prepare to bake,
Those three-cornered Hamantashen.

The filling is a tasty treat,
With variety to please all.
A brand new filling is in readiness,
When granddaughter makes her call.

She's sweet as honey and loves chocolate.
So, for surprise, she's due.
When she bites into a Hamantash,
And finds her "DrearroCome True."

With all this heart-felt satisfaction.
Comes thought of that fiendish Haman
Whom are forefathers chose to bring right judgement
So we could live again.

As we come upon this joyous time
And, once again, rejoice
Together, let us all be heard
That true rights be our fair choice.

National Fund in the Will of every Jew were
invariably followed, sufficient res
rtes would

should be as traditional as having a Blue Box
in one's home.

You may want your bequest to be
dedicated to afforestation, to a village, a
Nachlah, to a children's play area, to perpetual
yahrzeit or kaddish, or to some form of
permanent tribute in the names of persons
dear to you.
