Purim as G-d's
Jigsaw Puzzle

By Rabbi Nosson Scherman

Jewish belief is not based on miracles; belief must feed on deeper roots. Miracles can be rationalized, explained away or misinterpreted But there is more. Reliance on miracles, even undue emphasis on miracles, can actually dilute belief because it can make one forget that the "hand" of G-d is as present in what, for lack of a better name, we refer to as "nature".

Purim in the valley of tears
By I. I. Cohen

Purim, perhaps more than any other Jewish holy day, reminds us that despite how bleak a situation appears, salvation will ultimately arrive; nothing is ever hopeless. This moving article tells of a group of Jews trying to -- literally -- keep the faith in the face of unfathomable horror.
