Reclaiming the Purim Narrative: A Feminist Celebration Event

Hosted By: National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW)

Readings of the Purim story prominently feature Queen Vashti and Queen Esther, but too often focus on their beauty, dismiss their strength, and limit their agency. It’s time to recognize Queen Vashti’s brave disobedience and Queen Esther’s intentional and courageous decisions and actions. Let’s reclaim their herstory and recognize these influential women as community activists and organizers.

Join NCJW CEO Sheila Katz and NCJW Scholar- in – Residence Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, along with advocates from across the country, for a feminist Purim celebration! You will nosh some Hamatenshan (bake or buy your own at home) and hear an English megillah reading that will present Vashti as our original Time’s Up whistleblower and Esther as our original #MeToo shero.
