Fast of Esther 5784

Tomorrow is the Fast of Esther. Fasts are a gentle reminder that even though we think we are in charge, we are not. If the Master of the World says you don't eat, you don't eat, even if the world is full of food.


This year, many people will be fasting for the first time, keeping in mind the hostages that are still in captivity. I ask everyone who can fast, even if you've never fasted, to consider fasting this time around. Activists who are fasting for the first time have expressed their feeling of hopelessness. This is a good feeling because it makes us go to the only One who can help and that is HaKadosh Baruch Hu, the Ribono Shel Olam. Only Hashem can help and He can help in a second. He has unlimited ways to bring all our hostages home.


Please fast, get close to Hashem, thank Him for the good and the not so good, and have a relationship with Him. And take it all the way to Purim. And in the merit of our listening to Him, and returning to Him, stronger than ever, may our enemies disappear and may we only know unlimited good going forward.


Wishing everyone an easy fast, a freilechen Purim and that everyone receive all their heart's desires for the good. Amein.
