One of the great themes of the holiday of Purim is the concept of “Vinahafoch Hu,” and it is completely reversed. This concept appears throughout the Purim story and alludes to the fact that all of the parts of the story that appeared initially as gloomy, difficult and mournful in the end were reversed and not only were we saved from them, but those very same things were the source of our joy and happiness.

Join me as we explore a few examples of this from the Purim story and end with a meaningful idea which will add depth and meaning to your Purim holiday!

Happy Listening!
