VIRTUAL: Fast of Esther: In Solidarity with Palestine

Sunday, March 5 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm

VIRTUAL: Fast of Esther: In Solidarity with Palestine


Teaching, small group Purim text study, sharing and taking action.

Fasting and Feasting are often linked in Jewish ritual traditions. A period of fasting precedes life cycle and holiday ceremonies and is meant to focus our hearts and minds on unhealed wounds within our communities. Fasting is a call for reparative action before festivities begin.

The Fast of Esther is part of the tradition of repair.

This year, The Chavurah for a Free Palestine is partnering with Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb to explore Purim texts and practice that lifts up a Judaism which believes that ‘all of us or none of us’ is the truest expression of our cherished values. In this spirit, the Chavurah dedicates the Fast of Esther to a call for reflection & action in solidarity with Palestinians who are experiencing a horrifying escalation of raids, murder, and brutal violence against their families and communities.
