How would a find someone who can lein megilla with some shtick (acting different voices for different characters, etc.) who can do it for a frum and not frum girls crowd?February 19, 2014 11:59 pm at 11:59 pm #1006520SecularFrummyMember
Once someone at the Young Israel of Woodmere did a great leining in one of the smaller minyanim. Very animated with different voices for different characters and different tones depending on the scene.February 20, 2014 1:45 am at 1:45 am #1006521ultimateskierMember
would you happen to know his name?February 27, 2014 9:46 am at 9:46 am #1006522aryehsonnenbergParticipant
Come to Ramat Bet Shemesh, and you’ll be treated to an incredible reading, sound effects and a lot more 🙂February 27, 2014 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #1006523
Where can I find someone to stomp on a sefer torah, and who will do it for a girls crowd?February 27, 2014 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #1006524ED IT ORParticipant

Okay, to follow Goq’s formula, I will explain that popa is not ch’v advocating degrading a sefer Torah. Aderaba, he is protesting thr bizayon haTorah involved in treating Krias Hamegillah as a cartoon.February 27, 2014 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #1006526oomisParticipant
Who is talking about bizayon Chas v’sholom? It makes the megillah come alive for the children in shul and holds their attention so they don’t carry on. I know VERY frum and choshuvah people who lein with such expression, and the leining was way more meaningful, and everyone hung on every word.February 27, 2014 5:56 pm at 5:56 pm #1006527
Is the Goq formula some sort of home remedy? Does it work for colds?February 27, 2014 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #1006528
Right, cuz walking around drunk and serving booze to 13 year olds is a MUCH more respectful way to celebrate Purim. I get it.February 27, 2014 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #1006529👑RebYidd23Participant
Look for a girl.February 27, 2014 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #1006530

No pun intended 🙂February 27, 2014 6:30 pm at 6:30 pm #1006531

I mean, you’re comparing respect for purim to respect for the megilla itself, and the takanas chazal to read it publicly.
You can still make a point that you think getting drunk is disrespectful to the yontiff of purim itself and it’s mitzvos, and we’ll can discuss that. But I don’t think it’s immediately relevant to this.February 27, 2014 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #1006532
Oh, well I do. Cuz when you read it in different voices you are still reading it. And you are making it easier for people to attend (depending on your audience). If you want to tell me it MUST be read in the trop, that is a different story. But I would be surprised because most of the 25 minute reads I attend are just reading.February 27, 2014 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #1006533
And it makes it easier for me to listen to torah leining if the baal koreh wears a clown suit and scratches his armpits like a monkey whenever he mentions the names of any of the avos.
Sure, you are yotzei leining even if you do it in funny voices. But isn’t it a bizayon?February 27, 2014 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1006534
Are you pretending that that was an appropriate comparison?February 27, 2014 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm #1006535
No.February 28, 2014 2:14 am at 2:14 am #1006536LogicianParticipant
Am pretty sure that I remember a mispalel by R’ Avigdor Miller ztz”l telling me that this is how megilah was lained there.February 28, 2014 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #1006537Sam2Participant
PBA: Purim is a day where things that are often considered disrespectful become okay. Don’t ask me why. It just is.February 28, 2014 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #1006539
Sam, we lain the Torah on Purim, too. What about then? Do we really spread open the Torah in the kindergarten so that the kids can feel closer to it?February 28, 2014 9:18 pm at 9:18 pm #1006540golferParticipant
If you behave that way, the little kids will learn a lot from you. It’s something worthwhile for them to see. Maybe not as much fun in the moment as listening to all those funny voices, but it may just work out better in the long run.
My kids’ father and grandfathers never croaked like frogs for them at the Seder or sang maoz tzur with them in rap, (but they all Leined Megillah beautifully and respectfully) and none of them went OTD.March 2, 2014 2:42 am at 2:42 am #1006541
Vegilu Bir’ada is a pertinent quote. I’m not sure its implication is what you inferred.March 2, 2014 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #1006542
Sorry Golfer. I somehow misunderstood your point. You said it wonderfully well.March 3, 2014 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #1006543funnyboneParticipant
Stomp on a Sefer Torah!! C’mon, you need to find a nicer way to say that something is inappropriate!March 4, 2014 12:18 am at 12:18 am #1006544

Here you have a thread where people are advocating actually being mevazeh mitzvos and part of tanach, and your issue is my analogy?
