Our sages say, “#Mishenichnas #Adar, #Marbim #BSimcha – “When Adar enters, we increase in joy.” As explained previously, the month of Adar is a happy month.In addition to being joyous ourselves, we are also obligated to make sure that others are happy too. Our sages tell us that during this month we have to increase in giving #Tzedakah-Charity and make sure that the needy are also happy.
What is the reason for “Mishloach Manot” – sending a gift of food to friends on Purim? http://www.rootfunding.com/campaign/3036
Donate to our food center’s providing for the whole year, for the poor and needy!Sending gifts on Purim is an expression of friendship and unity. We thank G-d for the great miracle of Purim, when our lives were saved, by showing that we, as a people, are united and care for each other. There is no greater pleasure to our Father-in-Heaven than to see His children united.Why do we make noise when Haman’s name is mentioned during the Megilah reading?Haman descended from Amalek. The Torah commands us, “You must erase the remembrance of Amalek.” Thus, when Haman is mentioned, we “erase” and blot out his name by making noise.Why doesn’t G-d’s name appear in the Megilah even once?G-d performs miracles in two ways. One is by changing the laws of nature. For example, the Exodus, the splitting of the sea, etc. These were revealed miracles in which G-d’s presence was felt.Another kind of miracle are the not so obvious miracles. Because they happen so often, we do not perceive them as miracles and we call them nature. Purim was a “hidden” miracle, for it came through Queen Esther’s intervention. One may attribute the final outcome not to a Divine miracle but to the King’s desire to please his queen. This point is emphasized by the fact that G-d’s name does not appear in the Megilah. Miracles like these require effort to recognize their G-dly connection.
The lesson for us: Throughout our lives we experience two kinds of miracles: “Open miracles,” when we see no way out of a difficult situation and then salvation occurs; and “hidden miracles” which include the every day events, (walking, talking, breathing, seeing, hearing, etc.) which we take for granted. Miracles like these are part of our daily tests.
Purim teaches us that the daily “hidden miracles,” in which G-d’s presence is not revealed, actually represent the greatest miracle of all! #MoshiachNOW!!!
