Those out there working on behalf of immigration reform already think Mo Goldman is pretty cool, or at least an attorney who does such great work he helps people rethink all those lawyer-shark jokes they love to tell when lawyer friends aren't around.
But early in the week, Goldman finally came out, so to speak, when he and his friend Rebecca ventured downtown to pay Brewer a visit with some rainbow Hamantaschen as his other badass self—SuperJew. Hamantaschen are Jewish cookies a poppy-seed or fruit filling and folded to resemble a triangle or Haman's hat. And they are delish—a revolution in your mouth.
You can read all about SuperJew's exploits here, but here's a snippet of the red-capped one's adventure and rejection:
SuperJew and Rebecca ventured into the state building and made it to the 4th floor where Governor Brewer's office is located. A woman commented to her friend after seeing SuperJew, "you see, we really need better security in this building."
Disappointment as Governor Brewer's office was closed and posted on the door was this message.
SuperJew's visit and cookie delivery timing is perfect, after all the Jewish holiday of Purim is just around the corner and happens to commemorate a time when rocking Queen Esther saved her people by taking down evil Haman. In Arizona, we have our Hamans, but word is out on the Queen Esthers—voters?
Want to make your own rainbow Hamantaschen? Of course you do. This is a cookie made for the current times we live in Arizona my friends. So get baking and get delivering—release your inner SuperJew.
