Episode 8 – Purim: The Queen
She is the most famous and most frequently portrayed woman from the Hebrew Bible, a shy, obedient girl who rises to challenge patriarchal norms with astonishing courage. Join Romi Neumark at the Israel Museum to get to know Queen Esther as reflected in the works of artists from different periods – a woman who worked to change the destiny of the Jewish people.
Point of View is a partnership between Beit Avi Chai and the Israel Museum. Each episode presents a Jewish holiday theme through the eyes of objet d’art from the Israel Museum’s collection.
Presented by Romy Neumark
Directed and edited by Alon Levi
