Founder Dennis Rael’s mother, Paula Rael use to make Hamantaschen’s from an old family recipe and are still made at Los Bagels today.

Hamataschen are eaten during the Jewish holiday Purim. Purim is celebrated in early spring in honor of Queen Esther and her uncle Mordecai. Together they saved the Jewish people from King Ahasuerus’ evil chief adviser Haman. Purim reminds all people to have courage and always help one another. The Hamantaschen are triangular to symbolize Haman’s hat.

At Los Bagels, we celebrate Purim with our apricot, prune, and poppy seed Hamantaschen’s.
