Take One

Megillah 7 and 8

December 20, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Megillah 7 and 8, explain that Esther, making the rabbis uncomfortable, insisted that her story be written down and passed from generation to generation. Yeshiva University’s Dr. Shaina Trapedo joins us to talk about what motivated the biblical queen, and how writing still has the power to transform us and history alike. What writing tips can we take from the Megillah? Listen and find out.
