Purim is Not a Yom Tov
Speaker:   Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
Series: Purim
Lecture Details:  Purim is not a Yom Tov, as we are allowed to do melacha (work). It cannot be a full Yom Tov like Sukkos and Pesach, as we were still under the rule of Achashveirosh. Although we celebrate our salvation with great joy, it was not a complete redemption, especially for Esther Hamalka, who was still stuck in the palace. Specifically on Purim, the holiday in exile, we send gifts to the poor and to our friends, making sure to take care of one another, unlike times of complete redemption, when Hashem takes care of Bnei Yisrael directly.
