Rosner’s Torah Talk: The Megillah with Rabbi Jill Jacobs

Rabbi Jill Jacobs is the Executive Director of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights. She is the author of Where Justice Dwells: A Hands-On Guide to Doing Social Justice in Your Jewish Community and There Shall Be No Needy: Pursuing Social Justice through Jewish Law and Tradition.

This week we speak about Purim and the story of the Megillah. Is Esther a feminist, should we feel uncomfortable about Jews killing their enemies, is the King a villain?

 

 

And… don’t miss Rosner’s Podcast with Rabbi Mishael Zion, on The Book of Esther – A New Israeli Commentary.
