A Pre-Purim Persian Tour of the British Museum

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program

Would you like to see Achashverosh on his throne, the layout of his palace in Shushan and range of his riches? Weaving ancient Greek sources, archaeological discoveries and rabbinic sources, this tour reveals the Persian politics behind the Purim story and will give you original insights into the intrigue and excesses related in the Megillah of Esther.

You will never look at Purim in the same way again.
