Thanks . I'm not religious , and I'm always sad on Purim because it reminds me of the Shoah. I even cry . This movie offers a fresh outlook on Purim , I'll try to adopt it .

G-d is in Control

I would like to say ever since I have been unemployed I have served G-d like never before. I have learned about Jewish roots and am no happy to say now that I know about Purim and what it means I see G-d's Hand in my life. he IS working behind the scenes of my life. Just this past Monday I recieved a call from the job that laid me off. They want me back. Get this. This part is awesome.I am going on 8 years of living in my apartment complex, I have been unemployed for 8 months and the 18th I was called to come back to work. 8 means a "New Beginning" I see a terrific move of G-d. I can't wait to see what he has planned for me next. G-d bless and HAPPY PURIM! \0/

from an FFB- wow!

This was an excellent lesson for all of us, especially an FFB like myself who needs to be reminded of the magnificence of being a frum TorahMate helps in this matter, too, to open my mind to the wonderful reality of living a frum life...I approach Purim this year with a fresh perspective...thank you!
