Tomorrow night (3/14/2022) is an example of why we should continually seek our history, beyond the month of February. Deuteronomy 32:7 “Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.” Since tomorrow will be a Sabbath in the which we celebrate the victory of our forefathers against an invading Greek army. See, Nicanor’s Destruction. Following this celebration, the next day we observe a feast for two days in the which we study the history of our forefathers during the Persian Empire. At that time our people were in danger of being destroyed. Letters were sent out to all the provinces through out the empire (from India to Ethiopia) that all Jews should be exterminated; all the men, women, and children. However this was avoided by the mercy of the most High which was according to his prophecies. See, Purim. If our people were to bethink themselves they would know the achievements of their forefathers in its entirety. This knowledge they would be able to apply today and understand their future.
