כ״ח באדר א׳ ה׳תשע״ו (March 8, 2016)
Purim is just around the corner, this year begins at sundown on March 23.
Purim is the most festive of Jewish holidays, a time of prizes, noisemakers, costumes and treats. Commemorates a major victory over oppression and is recounted in the Megillah, the scroll of the story of Esther (Megillat Esther).
If you’re planning to read Megillat Esther in your shul this year and need a bit of help on your Hebrew pronunciation or want to brush up on a tune, the Virtual Cantor – Josh Sharfman – has recorded the entire Megillat Esther in mp3 format and put in online so that you can listen to it anytime on your iPhone or iPod (just tap on links below or visit website Virtual Cantor), you can also easily download these files to your Mac or PC and then transfer to smartphone or tablet. You will be able to learn without connection to the Internet).
There are two versions of Megillat Esther. The first recording was made at a tempo that is comfortable for listening. This is the version that someone might use to polish up the laining or is the version that someone who cannot attend a service in person might listen to. The second version is a digital signal processed version where the tempo was slowed 25% and the pitch was maintained at the original level. This version will be useful to those individuals who are learning the megillah for the first time.
