“Tonight I’m in Nativ Ha’Avot [1] celebrating Purim. Here there are two reasons to celebrate tonight:
The destruction has been postponed; they received permits to build 350 new housing units, and they’re celebrating Purim.
During the Fast of Esther [2], Supreme Court Chief Justice Esther passed a ruling that breathed some life into the residents of Nativ Ha’Avot.”

– Arieh King
