The Gemara Yoma (52b) records

והתניא משנגנז ארון נגנזה עמו צנצנת המן - when they buried the aron, they buried the jar of Haman with it.

I understand burying him, but why was he put in the jar in the first place?


I love it when another reader refers to one of my own questions! Thanks, @DonielF!

In my previous PTIJ question, How could the Jews eat Haman, I asked how the Jews were able to eat Haman for 40 years.

So, this explains how Haman stayed fresh for 40 years. He was vaccuum sealed in a jar!

  • I told you, it's the name. You said you're in Brooklyn, right? You should come to Queens sometime, we can enjoy some human tashen together as we ignore Talmud Torah. – DonielF Mar 1 at 15:57
