The Nighttime Megillah


Of all the Books of the Bible, only the Book of Esther, the Megillah, is publicly read at night rather than only by day the way we read Torah.  What is the hidden meaning of this night reading?  The story of the Megillah seems to conceal as much as it reveals. What is hidden beneath the palace intrigues and rivalries?  What does the laughter and the satire conceal?  

In two short videos, Rabbi Rudin explores the Nighttime Megillah and its meaningful and surprising message for right now.   Check it out! 

Part One: Five nagging questions. 

Part Two: Light in the Darkness

Enjoy this video about the Hidden Miracle by the Maccabeats!
