Sunday Adar Sheini 14, Purim 5703

In reading the Megilla, we read (8:11); laharog ul'abeid, v'laharog ul'abeid.

In 9:2, v'ish lo amad bifneihem, v'ish lo amad lifneihem. When saying ha'igeret hazot and igeret ha'Purim hazot hasheinit, we rustle the Megilla.

In Shoshanat Yaakov (p. 340): bruchim kol hatzadikim. Shehecheyanu is said before the daytime Megilla-reading too.

Torah lessons: Chumash: Tzav, first parsha with Rashi.
Tehillim: 72-76.
Tanya: Furthermore, the vital (p. 169)...the gross world. (p. 171).

In the Megilla my grandfather wrote, he did not place the ten sons of Haman in a separate column-page, nor did he begin each column-page with the word hamelech ("the king").

(In the Hebrew text at this point, there appear textual emendations in Torah Or, meaningful only in Hebrew. Translator).
