Once upon a time, a entrepreneurial man named Elie Green, desired to have a Haman Piñata for his Purim party. But where to get one? Online Haman piñatas were hard to find, and were likely made in China.
Elie scoured downtown LA’s piñata scene for days, interviewing dozens of vendors, looking for a company that would “get” what the project was all about.
He discovered a devoutly religious family that has three generations of piñata craftsman at work and they quickly came up with some prototypes.
Soon thereafter, the first, truly hand-crafted Haman Piñata was born in 2014.
Elie decided that selling the piñata’s to support Pico Shul seemed like a good idea, and it didn’t take much convincing.
