Today (Sunday) we holiday Purim. The origin of the holiday Charter story
Esther, by plotting Haman, from close to the King of Persia, rosh “destroy and kill and lose all the Jews living in the Kingdom. The sector managed to change aunt Esther and Mordecai, which made the month of Adar, days days of grief and destruction to multiple days of joy; The name of the holiday is derived from the word “Pur” (fate), which turn over during these days.
The Declaration tells us a story, highlighting the strength of the individual versus the historical decisions even at difficult, and people’s ability to stand up against his pursuers. The rescue Act.
Described in the Declaration, is a story of individuals exiting from “comfort zone” and choose to format the reality, to influence nor accept fate.
Status of Esther who married according to the prescribed early to ahasuerus, pulled her from the cutting. Nevertheless, the Decree shotela, Esther to appeal to the King, although the life that was inherent in that, in order to convince him to revoke the Decree. Esther embezzlement by its deep sense of belonging to the Jewish people and the understanding of responsibility
On her shoulders.
In the book of Esther in the cache corresponding to the nature of the relationships and affinities between us as humans living in one company. The destiny partnership revealed often only in times of need. External threat Declaration, lead the people to rally together and act. The tale teaches us that without purpose, Esther, without a real sense of belonging and responsibility, this partnership is lacking.
The Purim holiday is one of the happiest aalizim and the bmoedino. By joy it is also important to remember the message of the story at their infrastructure. As IDF commanders we have the responsibility to deepen and cement ties and affinities between soldiers of the unit: common destiny alongside mission partners; Partnership against an external threat, along with partners in the procedure.
We must strengthen the unity despite different between soldiers.
