John von Neumann 

(1903-1957)

mathematician, inventor of the game theory

Even as a child he demonstrated more capabilities than his contemporaries. He was learning French, German, Latin and ancient Greek, not talking about Hungarian. His memory was something like photographic, and he had also extraordinary capabilities in mental arithmetics. During his university studies he stayed a lot in Berlin, where he was learning Chemistry from Fritz Habert, Statistical Mechanics from Albert Einstein and Mathematics from Erhardt Schmidt. In 1930, he was working as a guest professor in Princeton, the United States. From the late 1930s, his interest increasingly turned to the applied mathematical problems. He was profoundly dealing with quantum theory and the basics of Mathematics, set theory and mathematical logic as well. The exact foundations of set theory derives from him. Creation of ’game theory’ can be connected to him and Morgenstern. In 1954 he received honours of United States for having launched the revolution of the second half of the 20th century. (The basic elements of electronic computers – usage of the binary system, memory, storage, software, manual system – are known as Neumann-principles).

According to the Book of Esther, Haman, royal vizier to King Ahasuerus (presumed to be Xerxes I of Persia), planned to kill all the Jews in the empire, but his plans were foiled by Mordecai and his cousin and adopted daughter Esther, who had risen to become Queen of Persia. The day of deliverance became a day of feasting and rejoicing.

The holiday lasts seven days in Israel and eight in the diaspora. The first day (and second day in the diaspora) is a Shabbat-like holiday when work is forbidden, followed by intermediate days called Chol Hamoed. The festival is closed with another Shabbat-like holiday called Shemini Atzeret (two days in the diaspora, where the second day is called Simchat Torah).
