Geula B’Rachamim – PURIM


How many sleepless nights Mordechai must have had. He had the weight of the entire Jewish people on his shoulders, and other than Esther, no one really appreciated what he was trying to do. He saw something few others saw, and it worked AGAINST him. Some even saw him as the enemy, antagonizing Haman against the Jewish people. It was a while before he was vindicated, and after he was, he still had those who opposed him.

Long before that, the prophets of the Jewish people had an even more difficult time, and they had been prophets! The people didn’t want to hear their warnings. The people didn’t want to adjust their lives. They threw caution to the wind, and the prophets with it. They paid for it, but it was too late to do anything about it.

And today? We don’t have any Mordechai’s or prophets. We just have a handful of people who THINK they see what is happening, who THINK they know what is coming next. Not very convincing. Not very convincing at ALL. Oh well.

In the meantime, here is the next essay, and a timeline to go with it [to be found at GBR link]. If you want to get involved in the project, give it a chance to work, use this link GeulahB’Rachamim.
