We will be conducting a close analysis of the text of Megillat Esther. Through this analysis we will develop overarching themes throughout the Megillah with a focus on hashkafic values. This will be accomplished through a close examination and appreciation of Peshat, Midrash, classical, medieval and traditional modern commentaries. Our analysis will be directed towards understanding the diverse interpretive approaches applied to these themes.
