Anneliese welcomes the viewers and then suddenly smell something delicious in the air. She follows the smell to Shoshana’s local coffee house where Abigail and Shoshana are making hamentashen, a filled-pocket pastry, for Purim. Shoshana tells Anneliese that they are going to hold a talent show for this year’s Purim spiel and the prize is a king-size hamantash with any filling of the winner’s choice. Anneliese sees Moishe Oofnik walk by and tells him about the talent show, but Moishe says he will be busy: not going to the Purim spiel. Then Shoshana asked Anneliese to be the host of the talent show and Anneliese agrees she will love to do it. After Anneliese and Abigail left to prepare for tonight, Shoshana went back to work on making the hamentashen.
