Full course description

One-time, online, 60 minute session

Join us for the fourth session of this 6-session Learning Chaburah with Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller.

Full Description:

The book of Esther concludes with a paroxysm of violence perpetrated by the Jews of Persia against their Persian attackers. Over the centuries many have been troubled by the unfolding massacre and the absence of moral restraint, especially as it is featured in a book of sacred scripture. This seminar will contextualize the violence, interpret its symbolic and reparative significance and, ultimately, reclaim the moral high ground.
