based on the story of Esther. The jewish people in that time were in danger, and so Esther told them to fast. “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” This artistic design has a great history behind it.
