Additional Purim Info:

The mitzvah is actually not to hear the megillah read but for each person to read the megillah for her/himself (some add with understanding). So I like to say to myself before a reading begins that I am listening in order to fulfill the mitzvah by hearing someone else do the reading (which establishes that I am using the reading to fulfill my personal mitzvah). For those who desire a more traditional Megillah reading than we are offering this year, here are five covid-friendly options.

1. (If you have a scroll) If you know how to read Hebrew with the proper cantillations you can read the blessings and the Megillah at home, or if you don’t know how to read with the cantilations you can follow along in the scroll to a prerecorded reading after saying your own blessings.

2. Listen to a live Megillah Hebrew Reading online while following along in a book or online text (and those who say one must understand. We recommend following in a language you understand). Sof Ma'arav on Oahu is planning an online Hebrew Reading.

3. Listen to a recorded Megillah Reading in the same way. (click here)

4. Read the Megillah to yourself (or follow along in a book or online text) in the language you are most comfortable. 

5. Join us for an English dramatic reading of The Purim Megillah Explained and make the intention to have this fulfill the mitzvah!

Purim Sameach!
