March 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Program Virtual Program
Program Fee: Free

Esther’s story is exciting, romantic and disturbing. Set in the imaginary lavish court of the Persian king 2,400 years ago, it is an early example of anti-Semitism. Is there actual history here? Why did many Jews oppose its addition to the Biblical Canon? We will explore key parts of the text of the Book of Esther and its world, then fast forward to its ‘movie midrash’ – how Hollywood has interpreted the story.

Sunday, March 24 @ 7–8:30pm, on Zoom
