Hearing megilah in the synagogue, specifically


We have been learning about Purim, and Megilah reading.

One is supposed to hear the Megilah read in the largest group possible, in order to glorify the Mitzvah and elevate the level of thanks we express to Gd on Purim. Special emphasis is placed on hearing the Megilah in a synagogue - even if one has 100 people in his house, he should go the synagogue to hear the Megilah read.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 690:18; Mishneh Berurah 690:62)

Have a great day,
