The special character of Purim


"Purim is not like the early [biblical] holidays, for all of those miracles are not like that of Purim. In Egypt they said, 'All boys who are born [shall be cast into the river], and you shall keep all girls alive.' On Purim, though, they said, 'From young to old, children and women.' Therefore, Purim will never be cancelled."

(R' Eliezer of Worms [Rokeiach], Sefer HaShem pg. 79)

Have a great day,
