Unmasking Purim -Rabbi Lori Levine

The Purim story is a story of wearing masks, name changes, and hidden secrets. The Megillah, the Scroll of Esther, requires all of us to read between the lines. For this session, we will explore texts and traditions around the upcoming holiday of Purim through the lens of hidden identities. We will also make connections to our own lives by sharing stories of the masks we wear, revealing the unknown, and the central importance of our own true identities.
