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.

 

Dr. Erica Brown is the director of the Mayberg Center for Jewish Education and Leadership and an associate professor of curriculum and pedagogy at The George Washington University.
