There was a Jewish man in Shushan, the capital. Why was his name “Jewish,” since he was a Benjamite? It is because he unified the name of the Creator before all the people in the world. And because he unified the name of the Creator, he was called Yehudi [Jewish] – Yechidi [unique] (Megilat Esther) .
“Yichud” means one, the only, the one. This word was used by the Jews of that time because they believed in a single Creator and that only the quality of bestowal should prevail in the world. Not only Mordecai was in such a realization, but also a whole nation.
In a rage, Haman decides to destroy not only Mordechai—the desire not to receive for himself—but all Jews, that is, the forces striving for unity.
Haman said to King Ahasuerus: There is a certain people, scattered and dispersed among the other peoples in all the provinces of your realm, whose laws are different from those of any other people and who do not obey the king’s laws; and it is not in Your Majesty’s interest to tolerate them.
The Jews did not want to obey Haman and Ahasuerus because the laws that reigned in this empire and in general on Earth were egoistic.
Question: Aren’t the laws of Ahasuerus laws of the Creator?
Answer: No. This is a two-faced king. Sometimes he is like the Creator and sometimes he is the opposite. It is unclear whether he is with Mordechai or Haman. That is the whole problem. What do we see in the world? The triumph of egoism. Whoever has more of it in all the qualities of a person is stronger, smarter, and luckier.
Therefore, it is said that everyone living in the capital of Shushan is perplexed: “So where is the Creator? Where is His strength? How does He manifest?”
Here, the action of Purim arises (Purim from the word “Pur, lot”), lots are cast. Otherwise, I cannot collect myself and find out who is in charge of this world: the Creator, the great, the whole, or the evil forces of nature. One of two things.
Evil forces of nature appear in front of me all the time. How do I know that there are good forces behind them? How can we reveal them? Megilat Esther gradually tells about this. After all, “Megila” is from the word “Gilui, revelation.” And “Ester” is concealment. Meaning, the revelation of concealment.
