Ten years ago when Arab terror against the Jewish people was at its height, the women and girls of Raise Your Spirits went on stage in ESTHER and the Secrets in the King's Court.
ESTHER is the story of the threat back in Persia against the entire Jewish population of the world.
It seemed then that the Jewish people were doomed, but with faith and courage, with unity and a return to G-d the Jewish people earned their salvation and G-d overturned the evil decree against them. The Jewish nation was saved and is enemies destroyed.
It's ironic that as ESTHER goes on stage the Jewish people are threatened once again.
As we got on stage to rehearse on Thursday night we heard that missiles had been launched against Tel Aviv. We stopped what we were doing and gathered together on stage. Together as a family we recited tehillim, and then we went on with our rehearsal, so that when our audiences come, we will be ready to really raise their spirits.
We couldn't have picked a more perfect production for this year!! ESTHER's message is clear - G-d can save His nation in the blink of an eye. And BE"H He will. Have faith.
The women and girls of Raise Your Spirits are back with their tenth anniversary production of one of their most inspirational musicals ever - ESTHER and the Secrets in the King's Court.
See it: November 18, 22, 29, Dec. 9 and 27
