My mother sent my girls an early Purim present – a Haman punching bag.hamanAccording to the description, “the punching bag is filled with an ugly picture of Haman and the words ‘Down with Haman.’ The adults will love punching Haman as much as the kids!” (Actually, it is filled with breath. Mine.)
May I present to you, Our Friend Haman – a cautionary tale in four short acts.


I'm gonna knock your head off, Mr. Haman



Come to think of it, you're actually kind of cute….

Such memories….we had one of those when I was a girl. We spent an inordinate amount of time trying to keep it from popping back up.
Crazy kids!!!

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
