Eating Seeds on Purim


OS 306 Purim

, 12 years


  1. The role that “seeds” played in the story of Esther is that in the king’s palace, Esther ate seeds in order to observe the Torah’s command to eat only kosher food. This way, she was able to have a healthy, caloric diet while avoiding the royal yet unkosher meat and wine fed to the other queen candidates.
