The Whole Megillah: Esther

Hosted By: Congregation Kol Ami

Join Rabbi Levy for the next installment of his series of adult education classes focusing on the five different megillot (scrolls) that are read over the course of the Jewish holiday calendar. Naturally, the book of Esther is read on Purim since it describes the founding of this holiday, but there are many aspects of this book we don’t often explore amidst the joy and celebration. This class will give an overview of Esther, its particular quirks, and how it has been interpreted over the ages.
