Purim is not only a biblical feast, it is God’s love letter to His people. It is His way of having the last say in the battle of good and evil.
When we were first approached by the Ashdod municipality requesting our drama club at Beit Hallel put on a theatrical production of Esther for Purim, and they would open it to the general public, we knew it was a divine opportunity to carry God’s message to a bigger audience.
We’re blessed here at Beit Hallel with an incredibly talented and creative young generation that put together an outstanding performance that wasn’t just wonderful creatively speaking, but it had God’s anointing all over it, leaving no one out of the 400 people in attendance indifferent to what God has done for His people when He delivered them from evil and commanded us to celebrate Purim to honor that victory.
It was such a vote of confidence on behalf of Ashdod city hall to entrust Beit Hallel with such a beautiful task — to carry the true message of Purim to so many people in Ashdod.
The testimonies we heard after the performance were amazing and a true indicator of how anointed it was. Many testified they had never understood the meaning of Purim until now, others were in tears because it touched them deeply to learn of God’s commitment to His people throughout history.
There were even some mothers who came to us asking how they can “sign up” their kids to our drama club at Beit Hallel because what our young kids did on that stage was truly inspiring.
Our Purim couldn’t be complete without blessing the children as we planned. Thanks to your generosity and kindness we were able to bless many kids with very special gift packages for Purim, putting a smile on their faces and a joy in their young hearts that is worth more than we could ever know. We’re grateful for you!
