A Villager in the Palace: Different megillah reading days for villagers and city dwellers

When the Jewish people as a whole dwelt in the Land of Israel, the reading of the Megillah (the Scroll of Esther) on Purim was not necessarily read on the same day for all Jews. In fact, depending on where one lived, there could be a disparity of up to four days between the respective readings. This class will explore the spiritual and mystical relevance of this phenomenon as it probes the layers of the heavens above and the soul below. (Based on the Maamar ‘Megillah Nikraas’ 5737)
