Good hopeful message that whenever things look gloomy, there is always hope. With prayer and unity we are strong

A small detail about Mordechai

Est 2:7 tells us Hadassah was the daughter of Mordechai's uncle, making her his cousin, not his uncle. Great study brother!

Exceeded expectation!

Was drawn to this experience today through a dear friend and her email....simply a verse from Book of Esther. As I read the verse, I quested for reading the Book of Esther... which reminded me of Hamentashen and Purim, Finding this website, opens a recommitment of faith for me. and fresh understanding.

Another not-so-accurate fact

Taanis Esther, the fast of Esther, wasn't a fast the Jews called before battle. It was a fast of repentance, of Teshuva, to help overturn Haman's decree. The Jews fasted before Esther went into the King's palace, not before doing battle.

Actually many people make that mistake. The fast of esther is exactly what he said. Fast before going to war

Behind the masked reality

Wonderful! Especially, "behind the masked reality is a loving, caring Gd." Blessings for a joyous, uplifting Purim.

Study Kabbalah and learn what really Purim is it all about

What is being told here, is maybe 1% of the reall story.

PURIM IN A NUTSHELL

Beautifully done, clear, enjoyable, and right on target. No important happening or message was missing. thank you

Just one thing...

One thing was not completely correct. There was prophecy into the second temple period. We may not have had it in Persia since it only worked in Israel. However, the time of prophecy was not over until many years after the Purim Story.

God with Us

Wonderfull, God bless you, God is with you and no nation can stand against you in battle... I wish the People of Israel and the Jews everywhere in the world a Happy Purim.
