Kleicha and Ma’moul Cookies: What’s in a Name?

Follow this link to an article I wrote for Repast (volume xxiv, no. 4, 2008, pp. 4-7):
Read about the story behind these festive Middle Eastern cookies, their cultural and historical ties with the ancient pagan Near Eastern New Year festivities, Norouz, and the Jewish and Christian feasts of Easter and Purim, and Muslim religious feasts.
The article’s title is: "The Iraqi Cookie Kleicha, and the Search for Identity"
