1. What's In A Name?

DESCRIPTION

In the first video of the series, Rabbi Fohrman raises the question of why Purim is called Purim, emphasizing how odd it is to name a holiday after the device Haman used to try to destroy the Jews. He points out that the text of the megillah itself seems to indicate that there is more to the name of the holiday than we have traditionally believed.
