A Kosher Megilah


We have been learning about Purim, and Megilah reading.

The whole Megilah is to be read from the text of a Kosher Megilah (written on parchment, with proper ink, and with several other requirements).
As such:
1. It is a good idea to have a Kosher Megilah with which to follow the Megilah reading - this way, one can always make up any words missed due to noise or distraction.
2. One who is not holding a Kosher Megilah should be careful not to read along out loud, lest he keep himself or other people from hearing the leader read it from a Kosher Megilah.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 690:3,4)

Have a great day,
