Esther 2:22, Question 4. Why does Esther report the plot to Achashverosh?

  • The Chiddushei HaRim writes that Esther reported the plot to Achashverosh because she was afraid that she and the Jews would be blamed for the assassination attempt.
  • His son, Rav Simcha Bunim writes that, if the king were killed, Haman (being second-in-command) would be in charge, and he would be even worse.
