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

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!

my favorite!
my kids are obsessed with this. but if you think this is good, wait till you see the whole thing. they cut out all the humor and cute parts here (and still so generous of them to put so much in!).

Totally worth odering the whole dvd!

Amazing Video!
My kids love this video! It is extremely well done and very educational. As are the other Shazak videos: Miracle Lights and Out of Egypt.
Thank you for this wonderful resource!
