For those of you fasting, hope it is an easy one

 ‘Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day; I also and my maidens will fast in like manner; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish.’ (Esther, 4:16)

Today, I fast, and remember this tenacious female hero who asked the whole Jewish people to fast in order to bring her luck in dealing with the man who held the fate of her Tribe in his hands.

After Shabbat, I raise a glass in honor of her bravery.

To Esther! Cheers!
