Making tasty, delicious and well-formed three-cornered pastries is easy, at least it is when the instructor is experienced. On March 2, the Chabad of Yonkers Women’s Circle organized a program to teach women and girls how to make hamentashen. All necessary materials were provided by Rebbetzin Chanie Hurwitz, who first presented a history of Purim before instructing the more than two dozen bakers how to prepare and bake the hamentashen.
