The Gemara (Brachos 7a) tells us here that Hashem showed Moshe the knot of His tefillin. The knot of Hashem’s tefillin signifies Klal Yisroel’s eternal attachment to the Almighty, even though we may not realize His Providential involvement and Divine intervention in our lives until much later on.
PurimListen. Connect. Reflect. Repeat.
Throughout the centuries, we have long endured the persecution of our enemies, none more so than at the hands of Amalek – the remembrance of whom Hashem commands us to obliterate in this week’s parsha. To this day, its evil influence continues to plague our people, threatening to quash our sense of Torah values, our moral code of ethics and our performance of mitzvos. Even now, the wicked remnants of Amalek incessantly seek to extinguish our pure and holy flame.
