Mitzvah #238 - Annihilating the wicked Amalek

It's a Mitzva to wipe out all descendants of Amalek.

Since nowadays we do not know who is a pedigreed descendant of Amalek, we are awaiting the arrival of Eliyahu Hanavi to enlighten us, after which we will wipe them out.

May we live to see the arrival of Eliyahui Hanavi speedily in our days.

Verse: "Erase all traces of Amalek" (Devarim 25:19)
