During CNN's Compassion Forum, Senator Hillary Clinton was asked for her favorite bible story to which we responded: The story of PURIM. Queen Esther, a women who took great risks for her people, was a female leader Hillary admired and would like to know more about above what is written about her in the bible.

“Ever since I was a little girl, a great admirer of Esther … There weren't too many models of women who had the opportunity to make a decision to take a chance, a risk that was very courageous.”

Pretty freilech!
