PURIM ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT!

Neither Sundays sand storm, nor Mondays rainstorm kept Purim observers from the Temple Mount.

The incidents recorded in the scroll of Esther took place during the historical period in which 42,000 Jews had returned from the Babylonian exile with Ezra, in order to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and to rebuild the Holy Temple. The building of the second Temple was met with fierce local opposition and with all sorts of international intrigues determined to put a halt to the rebuilding of the Holy Temple forever.

One of those most fervently opposed to the building of the Holy Temple was the great hater of the Jews of Persia, (modern day Iran) Haman, whose influence over King Ahashverosh nearly proved fatal to the dispersed nation of Israel.

It was Mordechai the Jew, who refused to bow down in obeisance to Haman, who ultimately caused Hamans downfall.
Sound familiar? No wonder! The same opposition to the rebuilding of the Holy Temple exists today and the same threats to exterminate the Jews are emanating today from the same place they where heard in the scroll of Esther: Iran!

And now for the happy ending:
Therefore, the Jewish villagers, who live in open towns, make the fourteenth day of the month of Adar [a day of] joy and feasting and a festive day, and of sending portions to one another.

And Mordecai inscribed these things and sent letters to all the Jews who were in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, both near and far, to enjoin them to make the fourteenth day of the month of Adar and the fifteenth day thereof, every year, as the days when the Jews rested from their enemies, and the month that was reversed for them from grief to joy and from mourning to a festive day-to make them days of feasting and joy, and sending portions one to another, and gifts to the poor.

And the Jews took upon themselves what they had commenced to do and what Mordecai had written to them.

For Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the adversary of all the Jews, had devised to destroy the Jews, and he cast the pur-that is the lot-to terrify them and destroy them.

And when she came before the king, he commanded through letters that his evil device that he had devised against the Jews return upon his own head, and to destroy him and his sons on the gallows.

Therefore, they called these days Purim after the name pur; therefore, because of all the words of this letter, and what they saw concerning this matter, and what happened to them.
(Esther 9:19-26)
