Who Am I, Israelite or Jew?: The Talmud on the Megillah, Lesson 18

Further analysis of Mordechai’s Megillah honorific links into a decades earlier exilic drama, and provides profound insight into why we historically exchanged the name Israel for Jewish. Then, in textbook Talmud-style, we meander onto a seemingly unrelated teaching about watershed events that preceded Purim by more than millennia. We uncover fascinating narratives about the courageous persona of a young Egyptian princess who saves the life of a Jewish baby; changing the world forever as a result. Followed by an appreciation of Moses himself; all of these points of light illuminate intrinsic qualities that have set our nation apart from time immemorial.
