Megilah with nikud (vocalization dots)


We have been learning about Purim, and Megilah reading.

Like a Torah scroll, the leader's Megilah must be written on specially treated parchment, with specially prepared ink.

Unlike a Torah scroll, one is permitted to write in the vocalization dots, as well as the notes for the tune, although this is not an ideal practice.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 691:1,9; Mishneh Berurah 691:25)

Have a great day,
