Topic: The True Story of the Megillah. The Story of Esther is unique in all of the Hebrew Bible. It is the only book that never mentions the name of God, and that describes a purely diaspora experience. It reads like a farce in theatrical form, but is there more than meets the eye? Join Rabbi Pokras for a three session romp through the text to find out. No charge; all are welcome.
You won’t want to miss this popular monthly Monday morning dose of Broadway with guest lecturer, Steve Friedman. Topic: More Musicals with New York as a Character. All are welcome!
