The Holiday of Purim is Coming! ✡ “Esther, His Uncle’s Daughter” – ISRAEL365

And he (Mordechai) brought up Hadassah,
that is, Esther, his uncle’s daughter;
for she had neither father nor mother.

וַיְהִי אֹמֵן אֶת הֲדַסָּה הִיא אֶסְתֵּר בַּת דֹּדוֹ כִּי אֵין לָהּ אָב וָאֵם

ירמיהו ג:יט

va-yi-HEE o-MAYN et ha-da-SA hee es-TAYR bat do-DO kee ayn la av va-AYM

Today’s Israel Inspiration

On the upcoming festival of Purim, we read about the beautiful Queen Esther. But from today’s verse we see that Esther was not always an honored royal enjoying the king’s favor. She was a poor orphan of uncertain future, who was rescued and provided for her kind cousin, Mordechai. Today in the Holy Land, there are 817,200 children living in poverty, facing similar challenges to that of Esther before she was wedded to the king. This year, the Israel365 Charity Fund will be bringing Purim joy to 2,500 of these beautiful, young souls. Follow in the footsteps of Mordechai and join us in providing for Israel’s neediest this Purim.

The Hidden Miracles of the Purim Story…in Song!

Stand for a tale so grand; the city of Shushan is where it all began. So raise your glass if YOU can see the hidden meaning!

Is There a Connection Between Purim and the Messiah?

Purim is actually one of the most important holidays in the Jewish year and is the only holiday that Jews will continue to celebrate after the coming of the Messiah.
