Ayeka: Searching for God in Megillat Esther

Rabbi David Silber / February 21, 2021

Audio   Videos  

Megillat Esther, more than any book of the Bible, lends itself to multiple readings. The session will suggest two readings of the Megilla, in contrast to the reading of the “hidden God.” In one reading God is wholly absent, in the other fully present. We will reflect upon the ethical and theological implications of each.
