Jerusalem, Israel - Feb. 26, 2021 - A special megillah reading Thursday night, February 25, 2021, originated at the Aish HaTorah Yeshiva in the Old City, opposite the Kossel, in Yerushalayim, and was done by Rabbi David Rosman.
After a request from Army Chaplain Rabbi David Becker, Aish Global is live-streaming Megillah readings via Zoom to US Troops in Kuwait.
Rabbi Rosman, Director of the Aish HaTorah Yeshiva commented: “The Rabbis teach us that the point that triggered the miracle of Purim was the moment the Jews of Persia united as one to fight our enemies. What an amazing opportunity it is to join together in our yeshiva at the Kotel, in the Old City of Jerusalem, with Jews so far away that we have never met. What unites us is our commitment to Judaism, and we are thrilled to help out the troops in such a way that truly expresses the essence of the holiday. "
Today's reading is to be streamed from Aish New York, in order to accommodate the varied time zones involved in this international effort to fulfill the mitzvah of Megilas Esther.
