The verse states that G-d loves peace and makes peace, and yet when it comes to the nation of Amalek, G-d very strongly condemns them and demands the Jewish nation to completely destroy any trace memory of them.
Why is that? Why would a peaceful G-d desire that? There must be more to the Amalekite concept than initially meets the eye.
Join me as we discover the Kabbalistic depth behind the essence of Amalek, what they really stand for and how they oppose G-d and the Jewish nation. We’ll look at the expression of Amalek in the desert after the exodus, the expression of Amalek as Haman, a descendant of Amalekite royalty as well as Amalek as the serpent in the Garden of Eden.
