It’s Never About Luck

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “It’s Never About Luck.”

Today is Purim, when we celebrate the Jewish victory over the evil Haman and his conspiracy to annihilate the Jews in the Persian Empire. Haman drew a lottery to determine what he thought was a fortuitous day, the 13th of Adar, to murder the Jewish people and pursued this plot through a decree by King Achashverosh. But as we know, G-d made miracles through Queen Esther and her uncle Mordechai, and Haman and his ten sons ended hanging by the noose that he built for Mordechai. 

This has been my personal experience as well, as I can see both now and in 20/20 hindsight that there is a definite Divine method and not just a world of random chance and madness.

Silly Pink Rabbit

You’ve got to really love rabbits to purchase this from the gallery and display it in your home.

Maybe it’s good luck for procreating, since rabbits are known to be specialists at it.

Also people like to carry a rabbit’s foot for good luck–where did that practice come from?

If the rabbit lost his foot and it’s in your pocket then it doesn’t seem like it was very good luck to the rabbit to begin with!

Who knows maybe it’s the Easter Bunny?

Honestly, aside from Bugs Bunny 

What’s up Doc?

And the cereal commercial about:

Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids!

I’m not sure who needs a six foot pink rabbit anyway. 😉
