Purim & the Book of Esther

Wednesday March 3rd 2021

2.00pm – 3.30pm (UK time)

Rabbi Jeff Berger

The Jewish Festival of Purim commemorates events occurring in the 5th century BCE as recorded in the Book of Esther. This talk will attempt to present a brief historical background, a deeper look into the Scriptural text and some interpretations, and a description of how the Festival is celebrated today. Unique to the Book of Esther within the Hebrew Bible is the complete absence of the name of God.

This event will be presented via ZOOM. If you would like a link please contact Sioncentrefordialogue@gmail.com
