You know what a royal scepter is? Did you ever touch the tip of one?
Think King Achashveirosh and his famous sharvit hazahav.
That’s a royal scepter. It will soon be pointing in your direction.
Because the Kav Hayashar writes:
“It wasn’t just to Esther that Hakadosh Baruch Hu extended the golden scepter. It is in every generation!”
Whenever it says “the king” – in Megillas Esther it means Hakadosh Baruch Hu. And whenever Hakadosh Baruch Hu writes something in a sefer as significant as Megillas Esther, it must mean something eternal, immortal, for all generations, even in year 2020. Because Torah is forever, and so is Megilas Esther.
So that’s why the Kav Hayashar writes that the golden scepter is extended to you, dear donor, to touch the tip of.
And the time this happens is Taanis Esther.
Queen Esther approached the “king” after three consecutive days of fasting, she recited the sublime supplication in Tehillim called Ayeles Hashachar, which speaks specifically of her, and that’s when the golden scepter was eagerly extended to her.
You can ask for whatever you want. You must need something, or at least want something, This is an opportunity to ask for it. The “king” has signaled to you that he eagerly wants to grant your request. Just ask!
This is the eighth year in a row that we are able to offer to you this special service. On the 13th of Adar, which is Taanis Esther, a minyan of pious, Torah-learning Jews from the kehillah in Teheran,Iran, makes the long and hard journey over back roads to the old city of Hamadan, ancient seat of Persian royalty, right next to Shushan Habirah!
This is where the tombs of Mordechai and Esther stand, to this day, and are honored as such not only by tradition of Persian/Iranian Jewry, but also by the current-day Republic of Iran, which has designated the tomb complex a historic site.
The minyan of Teheran Jews is going to Mordechai and Esther again this year, on Taanis Esther, and they are bringing with them the list that you want your name to be on. That’s the list of Vaad Harabbanim’s donors.
They will meticulously observe the special segulah of the Kav Hayashar, they will recite Ayeles Hashachar, they will daven fervently for Vaad Harabbanim’s donors, mentioning all the names and prayer requests. The Kav Hayashar writes:
“This day has a great segulah that our prayers should be accepted in the merit of Mordechai and Esther. Anyone who needs Heaven’s mercy in a certain matter… should take out time on the day of Taanis Esther and first recite the 22nd chapter of Tehillim, Ayeles Hashachar, Then he should pour out his words before Hashem, and make his request, and mention the merit of Mordechai and Esther…. His prayer will be received with favor.”
The “King” is reaching out to you his golden scepter, because he is so happy to see you. “What can I give you?” he eagerly asks.
