This week, just in time for Purim, we bring you part 1 of our in-depth discussion about Amalek. If you've ever wondered what the big deal was about the nation of Amalek and why we are commanded to completely stamp them out, this podcast is for you!

We begin with some talk about the olympics, then dive right into our Amalek discussion with an overview of the mitzvah to destroy Amalek (4:30), explain exactly what 'zachor' and 'timche' mean (8:30), explain what Amalek actually did (20), what they were trying to do (31), why we have to physically kill them (34), what our mindset should be (37), and why we must eradicate their memory (52).
Stay tuned for Part 2 next week! Contact us at with any questions, comments, or to sponsor an episode. In the meantime, have a wonderful Purim!

Some listeners have contacted us with download issues. If you have had similar experiences, please let us know. Remember, all our episodes are available on Youtube!
