Achashverosh On Trial: A Festive Courtroom Drama
Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)
Was the Persian king of the Purim story a bumbling fool or a conniving despot? Did Haman manipulate him to destroy the Jews or was he an anti-Semite himself? And what of his treatment of Vashti and Esther?
We have gathered great legal minds to debate this historic case. Drawing on contemporary and traditional arguments, and driven by eloquence, humour and special guests., this courtroom drama will deepen our appreciation of the Book of Esther.
