Pur Hu HaGoral is a collection of sermons related Purim delivered by Rabbi Shimon Gershon Rosenberg (known as Rav Shagar for his acronym) between the years of 1982 and 2003. Drawing on modern philosophy as well as on traditional chasidic thought, the work addresses spiritual questions such as the meaning of life and religious conviction and doubt, aiming to connect the Purim holiday with lived human experience.
