Purim.
A rabbinic holiday celebrating the survival of the entire Jewish nation from Haman's plan of annihilation r''l.
 
 
In this entire scripture the name of Hashem doesn't appear once! How could that be and what does it mean?
 
The Ness (showing of Him) of Purim reveals oneness with the world. Thus it's called Esther (concealment), Purim (In Persian and carries the name of Haman's lot) 3) There's no mention of a Divine name because the story is [the] Divinity itself.
 
Why is it hoda'a (Modim) and not in Avoda (Retzei) as is Yaale Vyavo?
 
The basic theme of Purim is
1) לא יכרע ולא ישתחווה
2) ישנו עם אחד.
 Jewish people are different in essence and trying to be like everybody else never really works.
 
 
 Before and after Purim.
 
Purim is only one day but not the same day for everyone. 
 
 
The Gemara says that Purim can be pushed forward but not back (Vlo ya'avor). What lesson is there in this?
 
Don't pass over.
