Purim - A day of monumental change

As in ancient Persia, Purim 2020 is a time of monumental change.

Thoughts on Purim 2020. 

Western Civilization will never be the same.

A  virus rocks the earth, without precedent.

Rise to power of terrorists in US and  Israel politics, without precedent.

Thousands thrust into poverty, without precedent.

Collapse of convenient air travel, a component of life on earth for 60 years, without precedent. 

We in Israel will remain, with nowhere else to go.

How the rest of the people of Israel will arrive at Israel's shores, no one knows.

Blessing of Purim carries a message of light at the end of the tunnel.
