Purim and Pesach seem like such different holidays. One celebrates G-d’s explicit overriding nature with the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt and the other celebrates G-d functioning from behind the curtain, from within nature. Yet, we find multiple examples in the writings of our sages that connect these two holidays. What’s the commonality?
Join me as we uncover many deep Jewish philosophies such as: the Jewish vs. the secular perspective on time, the Jewish vs. the perspective on the calendar and the role of G-d in miracles.
