However, there is something not so obvious about the Hamantaschen and the Purim story. We assume it is the triumph of good over evil. Like all such stories, there is a good guy and a bad guy. Yet, there is a much more subtle message about the potential evil that is inside of all of us. This we must know about, chew upon and digest. This we must transform in order to fully eradicate evil from the world.

“…we are challenged first of all to destroy the Amalek in ourselves…world peace depends on our inner peace.”

Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness’s of other people. Carl Jung
