TheFoundation Stone Purim

Feb 28th, 2010 by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg in Holidays
More than fifty people gathered last night to hear the Megillah – The Book of Esther – read with sound effects and more last night at The Foundation Stone headquarters. We then gathered and studied major themes in the Megillah such as the tension between men and women, and what exactly did Achashveirosh suspect about Haman and Esther, and Mordechai and Esther. We recreated the scene of Haman leaving the first party and seeing Mordechai sitting at the gate of the king. We examined why he had such a drastic reaction and felt a desperate need to immediately rid himself of Mordechai. We discussed how he could be so reckless in suggesting the manner in which the king should honor someone, and how his behavior reflects common mistakes made by all of us. We studied together until past midnight with the strong feeling that we were actual participants in the story of Esther.

The Foundation Stone thanks all of the participants for sharing their questions, thoughts and insights and making this a very special Purim.
