Her Story…

is our story …… we are all ‘Esther’ in some way or another – whether walking with the face of Esther or the face of Hadassah ~ we are all one in spirit. The one who is hidden, and the one who is not, the one who is a queen in waiting and the one who is of questionable background ~ it is us. Sometimes we face things with openness and boldness, and sometimes with fear and trepidation, but the two faces work together – always. It is through both faces that we are able to walk this journey with confidence, and competence as we come together to recognize who we...

Esther ~ Day 2

Let’s continue…… So Esther kept her ‘Jewish’ identity hidden from the world around her. That brings up the time when others in the bible ‘hid’ their identity doesn’t it? Can you name a few? Let’s see….there was Moshe, Yosef, Sarai … just to name a few. Why would they need to stay hidden? Probably, the first and foremost reason would be survival, don’t you agree? Survival is at the core of every human being – and, I believe, God given. After all, the priority on God’s list is – LIFE (chai)! But what...

Hidden….Yet Revealed

One of my favorite books of the bible is, of course, the Book or Scroll of Esther. The amazing intrigue and mystique of this short story is laden with unbelievable hidden truths…..all in plain site. After teaching and holding workshops in previous years on the mysteries of this young Jewish woman named Haddasah, but called Esther, I thought it time to bring those notes back out of the closet and share them again. So join with me and let’s discover again the beauty of this story. **** Esther’s story is the story of the exiles of Israel who remained in the Persian Empire and...

A Woman They Call Eve

Posted by on Jul 26, 2017 | 0 comments

She has come to us down through the centuries as a woman who failed. A woman who failed her mission, her man and her God. A failure. Totally. Not only a failure but a complete failure. And so the picture of who she was in the beginning has become distorted, perverted-nothing anyone would want to emulate. Who wants to be a failure? Not me. Unfortunately, from the very first one designed down to every one created since, has carried that tattered mantle of ‘not enough’ – unbeknownst to them. Bottom line, God made a mistake. WHAT? No He did not! The Holy One of Creation did NOT...

A New Purim

A New Purim

The megillah (story) of Esther (hidden star) will be read throughout the world by many of the Jewish faith next week to remember the festival of Purim. A fast was called to open the doors of heaven for a miracle during that time. The story line was about an egotistical, arrogant adviser to the king, named Haman, who devised a plan to exterminate all the Jews in the land of Persia (which is modern day Iran). The unlikely hero of the story was a young Jewish girl named Hadassah (a myrtle branch) who was called upon by her uncle Mordechai to go before the King, against protocol and intercede...
