Esther in Africa!

Just as Queen Esther raised her voice to save the Jews of Persia, two female artists,
Basya Schechter of Pharaoh’s Daughter and Galeet Dardashti of Divahn,
will sing out against the genocide in Darfur, Sudan.
Two nights before Purim, join us to celebrate Esther’s heroism….
We too can raise our voices to stop a genocide!
