THIS THURSDAY! Radical Purimshpiln and Re-Reading the Megillah

This Thursday, March 28th at 3pm ET, online:

The Purim story has been interpreted as both a story of liberation and self-defense, or revenge and genocide. Join us for a virtual conversation in the days after Purim, amid escalating devastation in Gaza and collective grief, to discuss what we want to take with us from this story of joy and violence.

Come learn with Raphael Magarik, assistant professor of English at the University of Illinois at Chicago; rosza daniel lang/levitsky, Aftselakhis Spectacle Committee; Elana-June Margolis, Doppelbanger: A Queer anti-Zionist Purim Spectacle; and your host, Jewish Currents contributing editor and Doppelbanger cast-member Ari Brostoff.

This event is open to anyone and free with registration. We invite you to check out our new membership initiative for access to future virtual events. Whether you’re a long-time subscriber or a new reader, we hope you’ll join us as a Jewish Currents member today!
