The Megillah Project

Hosted By: 929 English, Judaism Unbound

Welcome to The Megillah Project. Browse more than 30 videos, each offering a unique perspective on The Book of Esther.

The Book of Esther is traditionally read on the holiday of Purim. In synagogues, it often chanted to a special melody and read from a scroll—megillah is the Hebrew word for scroll—and even though there are other scrolls, Jews often refer to The Book of Esther as “The Megillah.” The Book of Esther is indeed a unique text in the canon of Jewish literature, opening its content to multiple interpretations.

We have gathered here a collection of perspectives on this rich text, bringing together scholars, rabbis, artists, teachers, poets, and readers to shed light on The Book of Esther from a wide variety of disciplines and sources of knowledge.

The event listed here is hosted by a third party. My Jewish Learning/70 Faces Media is not responsible for its content or for errors in the listing.
