Traditional Megillah Reading

Monday, March 9, 2020 13 Adar 5780

8:00 PM - 9:30 PMBeit Midrash

 

The Scroll of Esther, known as the Megillah, is chanted in the synagogue on the eve of Purim and again the next morning. It is the last of the five scrolls that form part of the third division, known as the Ketuvim, or Writings.

Megillat Esther tells the story of the Jews from the Persian Empire. The Scroll of Esther is known as the Megillah, due to its immense popularity, the prominence that is given to its public reading, and the fact that it is the only one that is still generally read from a parchment scroll.
