Monarchs and #MeToo: Esther, Purim, and Gender Politics

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 12 Adar 5781

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Purim's "public face" is a party: costumes, carnivals, cookies, and raucous noise, with the Book of Esther at the center. Please join our Adult Education Committee, with Rabbi Laura Lieber, who will lead a discussion of some of the ominous, even troubling, elements of the Purim story -- parts we usually gloss over. We will consider how the difficult parts of the Book of Esther can help call attention to the ongoing challenges of the biblical text and simultaneously raise awareness about issues critical to the present day. CONTENT ADVISORY: Topics of Domestic/Sexual Violence will be discussed. RSVP by emailing Rena Fraade
