י׳ באדר ה׳תשע״ה (March 1, 2015)
The Scroll of Esther, Megillat Esther, is chanted in the synagogue on the eve of Purim and again the next morning. The Book of Esther is chanted according to a special cantillation used only in the reading of the Book of Esther, but if no one is present who knows this cantillation, it may be read without the cantillation, as long as it is read correctly. Megillat Esther may be read even in the local language outside of Israel. In practice, however, the usual custom is to chant the Megillah from the scroll in its original Hebrew.
