The promise of Purim

By Yaffa Ganz

In the future "days to come," all of the holidays will be cancelled except for Purim, the most free-wheeling, noisy, disorderly, feast and drink filled day in the Jewish year.   —     —   Why should a rousing, boisterous, "minor," one-day, rabbinically ordained holiday that doesn't even rate the saying of the thanksgiving prayer, Hallel, be with us forever, while major, Divinely ordained holidays such as Passover, Shavuos and Sukkos will not?

Fighting Iron with Irony
By Rabbi Avi Shafran

Chance, the Book of Esther teaches us, is an illusion; the Creator is in charge. Amalek may fight with iron, but he is ultimately defeated with irony. A contemporary Purim story.
