Purim Boot Camp with Dr. Elana Stein Hain and Abby Pogrebin

Wednesday, March 9, 2022, 5:30–6:30 pm


Holiday Boot Camp

Third Session (Purim): Wednesday, March 9, 2022, 5:30-6:30 pm ET

If you were one of the hundreds who enjoyed our High Holiday Boot Camp series — or if you wish you had attended these popular, provocative conversations about the tent poles of our liturgy — you’re in luck!

For each of the five major holidays in 2021-2022, we will be offering ONE conversation with ONE fascinating teacher to unpack the holiday’s meaning and contemporary resonance. Abby Pogrebin (journalist and congregant) returns as our host as we explore Hanukkah, Purim, Passover and Shavuot together.

For Purim, Dr. Elana Stein Hain joins Abby for a deep-dive into Purim, focusing on a question faced by Queen Esther that continues to resonate today: When do we conceal—and when do we reveal—our Jewishness?
