A virtuous heroine. A wicked villain. It’s the ancient, true story of Queen Esther, brought vividly to life in a delightfully educational way.

From the Producer of Shazak
This is absolutely my favorite Shazak Production! I love it and can't get enough of it. Such a wonderful blend of humor and history. It is ten chapters and it follows the ten chapters of Megillas Esther.

This was our first production and it has a special mesmerizing magic to it. SPLENDIFOROUS!

BTW: My favorite part is when Esther is chosen as queen.

We, at Shazak are busy now working on a Shazak Parsha of the entire 54 parshiyos of the Torah.

Re: Was Vashti executed?
It is true that the text leaves it ambiguous as to whether Achashveirosh killed or simply banished Vashti. Some commentators do in fact explain that she was simply banished. However, most commentators explain (based upon Tamud Megillah 11b, Midrash Ester Rabbah 5:2 etc.) that she was actually killed.

Why the text leaves it ambiguous is a separate discussion...

The full version can be purchased, just click on the place that says "Shazak Productions" on top.

The only way more Shazak material can be produced is if people like you purchase the DVDs.

Enjoy SHAZAK and we should all merit to go out speedily from Galut...Out of Egypt!
