It is a glorious Purim Day, when we are bidden to imagine that all of our foes are - at least for the moment - vanquished, subdued by our own hands no less (with a little help from You-Know-Who), and we are free to celebrate our deliverance without looking over our shoulders, or posting sentries by the gates, or locking our doors.
I am a firm believer in casting about in the realm of the imagination. We all need to spend quality time there every now and then to make a good showing here.
So off with you, bon voyage, and have fun with family and friends.
To accompany you, perhaps, a bit of travel reading.
Here is a link to a review I wrote of Ilene Winn-Lederer’s book, Between Heaven and Earth: an illuminated Torah commentary, published this week in Tikkun magazine.
Be sure to check out her drawings - they are perfect perusals for this Purim day.
