The book of Esther is the biblical book most about diaspora life. How does the book explore this topic, so jarring in biblical history but so central to our own lives as American Jews? What is the relationship between "homeland" and diaspora envisioned? How do the lives of the main characters help build an ideology, and how do their genders contribute to their different existences and different aspects of Jewish life?

Join Dr. Aaron Koller, author of Esther in Ancient Jewish Thought, for a four-week class jointly hosted by Darkhei Noam and Drisha exploring these issues.

Wednesdays, February 13 & 20 and March 6 & 13; 7:30 - 9pm
