Hag Purim Sameah!

This beautiful picture, by Mayer Kirshenblatt, I found here. You can find the text of the Megillat Esther ( Esther scroll ) here in English, with commentary. ( Hier in het Nederlands ). For more information about the holiday click here.

PS: To my Christian readers: Happy Easter! Muslims celebrate Milad an-Nabi, the birth of the Prophet Muhammad, on Friday. If my sources are correct this is the first time in history that Purim, Good Friday and the Mawlid fall on the very same day.
