Food is an important element in Megillat Esther and the celebration of Purim. In fact, many of the traditional Purim foods carry the same "hidden" motif that we see in the Purim story as a whole.

In this lesson, students read portions of Megillat Esther that relate to food and design a new Purim food.

Looking for more great Purim materials? Sefaria’s learning department has gathered a new collection of sheets, Purim on Sefaria: Resources for Educators, which can be used “as is” or adapted to your own learning environment.
