An address to children:

Thousands of years ago there lived the wicked Haman, who wanted to do bad to the Jewish People. But they were not afraid, and they remained loyal to Judaism, to Mordechai and Esther, and to their teachers who showed them how a Jew should live his daily life.

What connection does Haman have to a Jewish child today?

Haman represents the Evil Inclination, who argues: "Since Jews today are scattered and dispersed among the nations, why be different from anyone else?" But the Jewish child boldly responds: "This is not the first time that an evil 'Haman' has tried to threaten and disturb a Jew. But Haman had a great downfall. And in the end, Haman's mischief only caused the Jewish People to attain even greater light, joy, gladness, and honor. Jews have always carried the light of Torah triumphantly, and so will it be today. No "Haman" and no Evil Inclination has any control over us."
