God’s name does not appear in Megillat Esther. While this might seem to indicate that the Jewish People’s victory over Haman was accomplished through purely human means, close reading of the narrative might indicate otherwise.
This lesson will explore how the name of Esther is a play on the Hebrew word for hiddenness and help your students reflect on where we find hidden miracles.
