“…the time when the Jews got relief from their enemies, and as the month when their sorrow was turned into joy and their mourning into a day of celebration.” (Esther 9:22)

In this photo from the Holy Land, Yael Eckstein’s children celebrated Purim this week, remembering how the brave biblical Queen Esther acted in order to save God’s people from destruction. Shabbat shalom, friends.
