Gal Gadot recently spent some quality time with two of her three children by engaging in a traditional activity of making specialty pastries for the upcoming Jewish holiday of Purim. The 36-year-old actress appeared to be completely comfortable as she shaped dough into Hamantaschen, a popular pastry during Purim celebrations. The holiday is a time for celebrating the Jewish people’s survival, as recounted in the biblical Scroll of Esther, which tells the story of how Esther, the wife of a Persian king, concealed her Jewish heritage. Purim festivities begin on Wednesday and end on Thursday.
Gal Gadot had a lovely time bonding with two out of her three kids as she joined them in the kitchen to bake traditional pastries for Purim. The holiday celebrates Esther’s bravery in convincing the king not to kill the Jews, who were targeted by Haman, an adviser to the king. Gal Gadot posted a series of pictures on social media, showing her and her daughters preparing Hamantash, triangular-shaped cookies stuffed with various fillings like raspberry or apricot jams, poppy seeds, dates, and figs. She described Purim as one of her favorite holidays, and making these goodies with her girls as one of her most cherished traditions.
As she prepared Hamantash (also known as Hamantaschen) for the upcoming Jewish holiday, the 36-year-old actress appeared to be fully immersed in the art of baking. The holiday spans from Wednesday to Thursday.
Yummy: Hamantash is a classic pastry that has a triangular shape and is typically made with shortbread dough. It’s usually filled with fruity jams like apricot or raspberry, but sometimes it can be stuffed with poppy seed spreads, dates, figs or other delicious fillings.
The sweet pastry that originated from Ashkenazi Jewish culture has an interesting backstory – it is shaped like the ear of Haman, a notorious figure in the Purim narrative, and serves as a reminder of his downfall. Gal, on the other hand, looked casual and trendy in a black turtleneck bodysuit and jeans, while her daughters Alma and Maya wore matching sunglasses as they got ready to make these delicious treats. She styled her dark brown hair into a neat bun and posed for the camera, sharing the pictures with her massive social media following of 75 million individuals.
