Purimfest 5775

Happy Purim, friends!



"And that these days should be remembered and kept throughout every generation, every family, every province, and every city; and that these days of Purim should not fail from among the Jews, nor the memorial of them perish from their seed.” - Esther IX, 28.


Some 2,500 years later, and we’re still celebrating. And in this moment, despite all our troubles, that’s all I need to know. As I read today: “Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation" (Exodus XXXIV, 10).

We’ve seen these marvels; near 4,000 years of them, and still strong today. And Purim is a perfect example of this covenant, these marvels which the Lord has done to us.

2,500 years, friends, and this holiday is still kept; it has not failed; the memory has not perished. We continue the celebration tonight and today.

2,500 years, friends. Steady on, and party ever onwards!
