Celebrating Purim: charity donations, gifts and triangular treats


Leytonstone and Wanstead Synagogue invite those interested in Jewish culture to celebrate Purim on 9 March.

“Purim is a festival marking the deliverance of the Jews of Persia from extermination 2,500 years ago… People eat triangular-shaped cakes filled with poppy seeds (Hamantashen), give each other small gifts of fruit and sweets and donate to charity. It is a really happy day!” said Martin Gaba.

Celebrations will take place at 2 Fillebrook Road, Leytonstone from 6.30pm, followed by a party with live music.
