A Winter’s Tale

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

“A Winter’s Tale”” focuses on Hanukkah and Purim, both related to events that occurred during the Second Temple. The story of Purim took place in the Persian Empire, and the story of Hanukkah took place in Judah, under Hellenistic rule. This program highlights some history and archaeology from those empires and examines Purim and Hanukkah through a philosophical lens. These are the last holidays of the Jewish Year before Passover and they play a unique role in the development of the Nation of Israel.
