Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted on the social media network a photo of himself and his wife holding a tray of homemade hamantashen.

“Baking hamentashen. Chag sameach! — celebrating Purim with Priscilla Chan,” read the Friday night post.

In response to a comment about the special Purim pastry, Zuckerberg wrote: “Hamen (sic.) was the villain of Purim and he famously had a three-cornered hat. These symbolize the victory over him.”

In a Facebook post in December 2016, Zuckerberg said he was once an atheist but now believes that “religion is very important.” The post came after he wished his followers a “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah” on December 25, 2016. Zuckerberg’s wife practices Buddhism.
