Today’s Talmud pages, Nazir 41 and 42, teach us that positive mitzvot override negative ones every time. Comic book legend Jordan B. Gorfinkel, author of the brand new Book of Esther graphic novel, joins us to talk about why Esther is the original Wonder Woman, and why the story of Purim is a comic book waiting to happen. Is Haman the original Joker? Listen and find out.
