Purim for Belgium

Purim for Belgium

IMG_20160322_213504

Purim celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, peace and happiness over terrorism. It is the Jewish story of a tempered decree meant to kill all Jews under the Persian Empire, at that time, supplemented with an additional decree allowing for our self-defense. We were victorious. We celebrate today to commemorate that victory. We stand with you, Belgium, in fighting terror today. We may not be able to celebrate our holiday openly, due to the present security considerations after the recent terror attacks, in Belgium’s public squares as originally planned, but know that we will celebrate privately, in solidarity with you, in private homes and synagogues worldwide. Terror shall not prevail. We stand with you, Belgium!
