Diaspora, Gender, and Politics in the Book of Esther

Dr. Aaron Koller

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

7:30 pm

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