The book of Esther is an amazing story of God's faithfulness and love for His people. While I understand a joyful, boisterous celebration I wonder how the celebration came to involve (in certain areas like the Crown Heights Jewish community) dressing in costumes. Can someone provide clarification Reply

Hence a nap at noon to relax knowing safety.

Because of Queen Ester and evil Haman. She saved the Jews from execution Reply
