What could possibly be hidden in a holiday based on a text which begins with a six month party and then gets down to the serious drinking, resulting in a king banishing his queen into exile? Is Purim the embodiment the classic definition of a Jewish Holiday: They tried to kill us, we won, let’s eat? If so, why did we turn it into a children’s holiday?
