It’s megillah-writing season. So here are some fun pictures from a megillah. A photocopy of a megillah, actually, whose provenance I do not know (other than the obvious “Ashkenaz, Beit Yosef script”).
Students, look and be impressed at the scribe’s creativity, but also take the time to look critically. Notice how you can make a splendid effect without being 100% accurate, symmetrical, etc.? You can do that too.
Also this season, bear in mind that wine carriers make very excellent megillah cases. Some of them don’t even look like wine carriers, they’re just pretty. Some of them have handles. Some are sold blank so you can do your own decoration. And liquor stores will often give you the presentation tubes for very fancy liquors if you ask nicely.
This post is for the upcoming mailing to the Sofrot Google Group. If you are a soferet, or have aspirations in that direction, you can join using the contact information which will be added to this post once Madame la administrator tells me which contact deets to put here.
