In the aftermath of the Royal Parade where Persia’s leading anti-Semite, was forced to give glory to kingdom’s Chief Rabbi; we are told about Mordechai and Haman’s subsequent behaviour. The Sage resumes his penitential fasting and contrition, while the devastated Prime Minister despondently slinks home in the self-imposed anonymity covered in filth and shame! Filled with subtleties and nuanced prose, this deceptively simple verse is laden with deep meaning, profound insight and powerful lessons that we can use in our day and age!
