The post We Jews just read a story about corruption and power. The moment that seems most poignant comes early in Chapter 3: “All the king’s courtiers in the palace gate knelt and bowed low to Haman, for such was the king’s order concerning him; U’Mordechai lo yichra v’lo yishtachaveh but Mordechai would not kneel and he wouldn’t bow.” Such a proud moment! Mordechai, the noble court Jew, stands up to the wicked Haman! And each year, we relish the moment of his defiance, his Jewish pride and chutzpah. appeared first on MISTER MORT.
