Tzohar to Hold Record 200 Megillah Readings


The Tzohar rabbinical organization is scheduled to hold readings of the Book of Esther at 200 locations throughout the country on Purim, the Feast of Esther, Saturday evening through Monday. A list of locations appears on the organization's Facebook page.

It's the fourth year that Tzohar is organizing the readings. The goal is to bring the atmosphere of the holiday to a variety of secular and religious Israelis and allow them to feel the tradition of Israel. There will be special readings for the hearing impaired via simultaneous translation into sign language.
