Purim Bake Sale

Each year our Sisterhood sells professionally baked hamantaschen and rugelach to make your Purim celebration extra-sweet.  Why slave in the kitchen when Sisterhood can deliver the goods without any extra hassle?  Order today!

No order is too big or too small... place your order early to ensure you get the quantity and flavors you desire. Deadline for pre-orders is February 29.

Orders can be picked up during the Purim Carnival on Sunday, March 17,  in the Temple social hall. We do always order extra baked goods, so if you did not place an order in advance, you are welcome to drop in and shop.

Contact Susan Patston at or 303-881-2860.
