On Purim, the story of Esther takes us to Shushan, traditionally associated with ancient Persia. To this day, many Persian Jews refer to themselves as the “Children of Esther.” Our very own Tina Ahava Azarin is delighted to speak to her narrative as a Persian Jew. She’ll enlighten us about the Jewish community of Iran and speak to the history of the community as well as highlighting various Persian Purim customs. Charmed by the traditional megillah reading, join us for this more modern tale on a journey of discovery. We’ll even provide Persian treats alongside hamentashen!
