Is Mordechai relying on a miracle, or just arguing? How do we know when someone is relying on a miracle? Monica Cellio‭ about 2 months ago

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
