The Five Faces of Purim
Fear, Fun, Feasting, Fasting, and Feminism
Join us as we explore the historical origins of Purim and the customs for celebration of Purim in many lands and with many unique traditions. We will also discuss references to Purim in the Talmud and Midrash and in Jewish law. The roles of Esther and Vashti and their connection to the current #MeToo movement will also be touched upon.
