The Book of Esther: Purim Torah, Fairy Tale, Satire or History?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Setting the stage for rollicking Purim fun, the Book of Esther can be taken at face value, but also has many layers of hidden meanings waiting to be revealed. Beloved by the people yet reviled by the rabbis, Esther almost did not make it into the canon of the Hebrew Bible, for reasons that we will explore together. We will read Esther closely, focusing on the words on the page to see what they say, what they might mean, and what they can mean to us. For the open-minded only.
