The Book of Esther: Biblical Leadership, Dual Loyalties and the Divided Self: In this interactive close-reading of text, we will explore the tensions of biblical figures as they navigate two worlds and two identities and what this conflicted identity offers us as both a model and warning about life in the diaspora.
