A happy buzz of laughter and conversation filled the kitchen at Temple Beth Shalom on a recent afternoon, as women gathered to bake hamantaschen for the 72nd annual Kosher Dinner. The enticing scent of vanilla, dates and strawberry jam wafted into the hallway. Hamantaschen, triangular cookies with jam in the middle, are traditionally made during the Jewish holiday of Purim. “We’ll have a Purim party for the kids and serve the cookies,” said Annette Goldstein, wife of Rabbi Michael Goldstein. “Whatever isn’t eaten we’ll sell at the dinner”/Cindy Hval, SR.
