Purim in "Eretz Yisrael"

The Purim story reads like a Diaspora story. Truthfully, it’s an "Eretz Yisrael" story.  "Eretz Yisrael" literally means, "The Land of Israel". However a careful reading also brings out the meaning, “I want to be Jewish!”

Only in our Holy Land can our Jewish identities be nurtured to their highest of heights to the levels where our souls resonate. This is possibly why even today there’s no Purim celebration like Purim in "Eretz Yisrael".

Happy Purim !
