fitted the large esnoga. He was born in Amsterdam on 14 March 1897 and died
in Dachau, Germany, on 19 January 1945.

|Megillaht Esther (Complete recording,
It's our custom to start reading the Megillah some 20 minutes before tzeit hakochavim, so that the chazzan reads the first words of chapter 6 (בלילה
