[A question from Mordecai to Queen Esther, who has pointed out that approaching the king carries very high risks:] “Who knows, perhaps you have attained to royal position for just such a crisis?’ – Esther 4:14

I wish everyone reading this a happy, fun, inspiring Purim. May we address ourselves to the challenges of the present moment with the courage and imagination of Esther!
