Baltimore, MD - Feb. 23, 2021 - Taanis Esther is a day of tefillah. The power of the Jewish People comes from the bracha (blessing) of Yitzchok, Hakol Kol Yaakov, the voice is the voice of Yaakov. Our weapon to fight against Eisav is our tefillos. On Purim, Mordechai, the descendant of Yaakov, fights against Haman, the descendant of Eisav. We spent three days fasting and praying that Hashem should send us a salvation. Esther does not tell Achashveirosh her request immediately to teach us that sometimes, the answer to our prayers is not immediate, but Hashem gathers our tefillos and always listens and responds.
