The Book of Esther



A Virtuous Queen, A Wicked Courtier, What Could Possibly Go Wrong (Twice)?

We will look at the book of Esther and what it tells us about women’s roles, diaspora living, how we know what is the right thing to do, the author’s view of the non-Jewish world, the consequences of pride and the Bible’s use of humour and irony.
