Megillat Esther now published in its ninth edition and revised

BROOKLYN, NY — Wednesday, March 01, 2006

FREE Publishing House, has released 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 in a clear, crisp typeface. The Russian translation, while still based on the original edition, has been amended to read more smoothly.

Following the Megillah, there is an additional 30 plus pages that contain the chapter on Purim of FREE’s yet-to-be-published book titled "Jewish Holiday and Festivals". This chapter includes the story of Purim; the holiday's background, its history and laws as well as its practical lessons and relevance now, 2300 years later, based on the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson.

Now in its ninth edition, the Megilla went to print with a press run of ten thousand copies; the distribution of the Megilla is amongst a whole array of projects of FREE’s Holiday Awareness Campaign.

Many thanks go to Rabbi Moshe C. Levin and Rabbi Shlomo Galperin, noted writers and lecturers, for their pioneering work on the original translation and to Rabbi Tzvi H. Okunov, Vice President of F.R.E.E., for bringing the first edition to print.

Particular thanks go to Rabbi Berl Haskelevich and Mr. Mikhail Rubin for their extensive editorial work on revising this new edition; Mendy Goldstein and Rabbi Ephraim Stock for their design and layout; Rabbi Mayer Okunov, Chairman of F.R.E.E., for his invaluable editorial assistance and guidance, Rabbi Yosef Y. Okunov, Director of the FREE Publishing House, for directing the project and bringing it to fruition.
