Multiple Angles of Seduction

Details

As Purim approaches, I focus on the moment when, after Haman leads Mordecai through the streets of Shushan and declares "This is what the king does for a man whom he wishes to honor!" Mordecai immediately goes back to his sackcloth and fasting. By not falling for this surface-level king-moment he taps into what Rebbe Nachman describes as the kingship rooted beyond the surface.
