The Jewish Story is narrative therapy for a nation, but how can it also serve each of us in our quest to be actors in our lives instead of objects? Listen in to this great Purim Torah, an exploration of what the conversation between Mordecai and Esther can teach us about owning our own story.

Eve Harow ruminates on the connection between the COVID-19 pandemic and Purim and shares thoughts on the Los Angeles reunion that she and her husband attended over Shabbat. She and many others involved in tourism are without work for the foreseeable future as the expected cancellations flow in. Global chaos serves the interests of not good people; wishing wisdom and clarity to our leaders who are battling under clouds of uncertainty to keep us safe. May what seems frightening now turn out well in the end, and let’s try to keep the hysteria to a minimum in the meanwhile and have faith in a positive master plan. At least on Purim we can drink to that! Chag sameach to all.

As Purim approaches, Rabbi Yishai Fleisher is joined by Rav Mike Feuer to talk about the latest chaotic Israeli elections, the politics of the Persian court in Ester’s time, and the commandment to remember to forget Amalek. Then, Malkah Fleisher on Coronavirus gone viral and we read your emails!

Hatred of the Jews is the oldest and most pervasive form of prejudice which humanity knows. In this episode Rav Mike uses the comments of Haman to ask not only why we are hated, but also what we can do about it.
