Video copyright Youtube User ID bobf72450.Esther's Love written and sung by Judy Tellerman from the album, We Keep The Flame. The CD is available at cdbaby.comPhotos are taken from the movie, "One Night With The King".Ms. Tellerman comments; "This song tells the story of Purim (Heb.: Lots), commemorating the deliverance from Haman's plot to murder all the Jews of Persia who had survived the Babylonian captivity. The festive celebration includes reading the Megilla (Heb.: Book of Esther) aloud in the Synagogue, giving charity to the poor, mishloach manot (Heb.: exchanging gifts of food), and a celebratory feast including wearing masks and costumes and drinking wine. Purim represents the union of the physical and the spiritual because physical pleasures are imbued with holiness. The holiness achieved through pleasure is considered superior to the holiness achieved through denial because it requires a much greater measure of striving and effort."
