Rabbi Korngold Discusses Link Between Purim and Passover Stories

Rabbi Jamie Korngold, the Adventure Rabbi, discusses the differences and similarities between the Jewish holidays of Purim and Passover that occur only one full moon apart. In the story of Purim, the Jewish people are oppressed, but write a story where the hero is a woman, and God is not present. During Passover, the Jews are freed from Israel by the outstretched arm of God.
