Did Abraham condone or condemn Sara’s treatment of Hagar? How did Esther manage to convince Achashverosh to turn against his trusted advisor? And what is the connection between these two stories? Join Drisha at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to explore the artistic rendering and recontextualization of these biblical narratives. We will study the biblical art within its historical context and alongside classical rabbinic and medieval commentaries.
