Talking Torah Round Table; Yom Mordechai and Yom Nicanor

Today Yoel and I get caught up from many months not being able to record together. In today’s program we discuss Yom Mordechai and Yom Nicanor. Yom Mordechai is also known as Purim. We discuss the story of Esther and also what might or might not have happened. We also put the timeline of Esther in the timelines of Daniel and Ezra. We also trace Esther’s timeline in the kingdoms of Assyria and Babylon and Persia. We both hope that you enjoy today’s discussion.
