a new revised edition of the Megillat Esther,
featuring the original Hebrew text with the accompanying
Russian translation, it has been enhanced in several ways:
the whole volume, both Hebrew and Russian, has been reset

still based on the original edition, has been amended to
read more smoothly.

that contain the chapter on Purim of FREE’s yet-to-be-published

chapter includes the story of Purim; the holiday's background,
its history and laws as well as its practical lessons and

a press run of ten thousand copies; the distribution of the
