We’re all familiar with the story of Esther…Jewish people are oppressed, a brave queen stands up for her people, everyone lives happily ever after. But there’s so much more to the story. From parts of the book we don’t normally read, to rabbinic fantastical Midrashim, to modern takes, we will explore the Book of Esther in ways that you probably didn’t learn in Hebrew School!
