The celebration of Purim gives us the ability to look behind the mask and discover the real person.

 A true story that actually happened – A Flatbush guy, goes on a date with a Boro Park Bais Yaakov girl. The guy sees they have absolutely nothing in common, so he keeps driving around the town without saying a word. The girl starts talking about her learning on the phone nightly with her chavrusa. She’s going on and on about learning with her chavrusah Mesilas Yesharim. Then she asks her date, if he ever learned Mesilas Yesharim!!!
His reply: I watched the movie!!!
