A Different Megillah

In a few days it will be Purim.  Most Jewish communities world-wide are commanded to listen to the Megillat Ester, Scroll of Esther twice, evening and morning of Purim.  It tells the story, giving background and history of the events and personalities we Jews have been commemorating for thousands of years.  Here in Shiloh, the Biblical one in the HolyLand, we have two days of Purim, so we have double all the commandments including hearing/reading the Megillat Ester.

But this post is about a different megillah, the Gantseh Megillah, a monthly round-up of articles about Jewish life from all over the world and all sorts of life styles.  Here's the March edition of the Gantseh Megillah for your reading pleasure.  Enjoy!
