Kill doubt with celebration
HH. Purim is all about beating Amulaik. The holy books are saying that part of what Amulaik signifies are doubts, as the gimatria - numerical value - of Amulaik = doubt. It is interesting to note that many cities in Israel have a doubt whether to celebrate Purim on the 14th of Adar or on the 15th (as is the law for cities that had been walled), and thus confronting this doubt they celebrate Purim for two days. May we merit to ascend over all our doubts in this fashion.
