Israel Photo Trivia ✡ “To the Banquet with Esther” – ISRAEL365

So the king and Haman came to the banquet
with Esther the queen.

וַיָּבֹא הַמֶּלֶךְ וְהָמָן לִשְׁתּוֹת עִם-אֶסְתֵּר הַמַּלְכָּה

אסתר ז:א

va-ya-vo ha-me-lekh v’-ha-man lish-tot im es-tayr ha-mal-ka

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Why does Esther deem it necessary to invite Haman to her banquet with Ahasuerus? As long as the Jews knew that they had Esther in the palace, they were counting on her to reverse Haman’s evil decree. Esther wanted the Jews to fully repent. Inviting Haman made it appear that she was joining forces with him. At that point, the Jews gave up on Esther and called out to God with a new intensity that merited salvation. Throughout the ages, true redemption arrives when we realize that we have no one to rely on aside from the Lord. Next week is the festival of Purim when Jews around the world celebrate the miraculous events and powerful lessons recorded in the Book of Esther. Learn more about the festival and shop for everything you need to observe the holiday.
