Here, retired Tel Aviv University professor of English, poet and rock lyricist Karen Alkalay-Gut questions a specific incident in the Megillah - the Book of Esther that read in synagogues on the holiday, to the accompaniment of jeers and noisemaking instruments whenever Haman’s name is mentioned. Esther 9:7-10 recounts that among those the Jews “smoteâ€� were Haman’s 10 sons. After hearing this, in response to the besotted king’s offer to grant her any wish Esther asks prettily in 9:13: “If it please the king … let Haman’s 10 sons be hanged upon the gallowsâ€� â€" even though they were already dead. And so it was.
