Description

Was the Jews' war really a massacre? How did they knew whom to attack, if "no one stood before them"? How did they produce a same-day census of the dead? And why did the Jews spontaneously celebrate by sending portions of food to each other, before Mordechai/Esther ever said anything about doing so?
