When you drink wine you forget everything. The world drinks wine to forget the good and remember the bad. When we get drunk on Purim, we forget the bad. We even forget how bad Haman is. We only remember the good in the world… and in Heavan they do the same. On Yom Kippur I am asking forgiveness for all the bad things I did. But on Purim, I don’t have to ask forgiveness because Heavan only remembers the good.
On Yom Kippur, we don’t give gifts to each other because we are separate from each other. On Purim, we cant stop giving gifts because we are one. Hopefully, one day there will be peace in the world, but every year it begins on Purim. ~ R’ Shlomo Carlebach zt”l
