Hashem’s Incredible Plan to Hang Haman
on a Fifty Cubit High Tree Taken from Noach’s Ark

 

Midrash: Haman searched endlessly for a fifty cubit long wooden beam…
his son Parshandasa had obtained this wooden beam from Noach’s ark

*****************************

Maharal of Prague: only forty nine gates of “binah” were given over to Moshe,
the fiftieth gate is not part of this world, it is part of the World to Come

*****************************

Haman made himself a godly stature and wanted to show he is capable to attain even the fiftieth gate, for this reason, he wished to hang Mordechai on a gallows fifty cubits high

*****************************

An amazing chiddush from the Maharal: Noach and family got saved from the flood,
by entering the ark that is in the sense of the fiftieth gate

*****************************

Reb Tzaddok haKohen: Haman wished to hang Mordechai,
to prevent him to influence Yisrael to accept the Torah she’b’al peh

*****************************

Haman wished to hang Mordechai on “a fifty cubit high gallows”,
versus Torah she’b’al peh that contains within it fifty gates of binah

*****************************

Chasam Sofer: The dove completed his mission form Noach to stray from the ark,
accepted the Sages’ Decree in an Act of Self-Sacrifice

*****************************

Rokeiach: The first letters of the words ה’וציאה מ’מסגר נ’פשי
spell out the name המ”ן — Haman; because Haman took a fifty cubit long plank from the ark
