Purim: A Perfect Example of Assimilation with Clive Lawton
The Purim story should speak to modern Jews in the diaspora more than any other festival story in our calendar or Bible. These were not heroic figures or inspiring leaders. Forget Judah the Maccabee from Chanukah or Moshe from Pesach. All we’ve got here is a couple of Jews keeping their heads above water in an unsympathetic world. At last, a story about us and our friends. In this session, Clive will re-examine the story in the book of Esther and explore what it tells us about ourselves.
