Must you repeat it if you lost your breath and didn’t finish it in one breath?March 16, 2014 3:11 am at 3:11 am #1008505pixelateMember

I have to tell you, I lose MY breath just LISTENING to the leiner do it!March 17, 2014 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1008507WolfishMusingsParticipant
If the ten names are said in multiple breaths, the reading is 100% fine. In fact, I would argue that if reading it in one breath is going to cause some of the words to be swallowed or rendered incomprehensible, then you *should* read it with more than one breath.

There is a trick to it, and the person reading the megilla can take in extra breath without stopping completely by doing a little trill every couple of ‘v’ess’ – when you do a trill as opposed to keeping the same note you actually breathe in a little at the same time.
Having said that, it only just about keeps you going until ‘aseres’.March 17, 2014 10:25 pm at 10:25 pm #1008509EpisParticipant

@rebyidd23 – I never thought about it that way. 😀 What do you suppose life would be like if people called us by our screen names in real life?March 18, 2014 3:21 am at 3:21 am #1008515I. M. ShluffinParticipant
The trick is to practice it beforehand. Twice a day, when you wake up and before you go to bed. Take water with it. Try to get it down to all the names in 2 seconds. I’m sure it’s not impossible.March 18, 2014 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1008516oomisParticipant

Even l’chatchila it’s a kosher reading.
Ideally, a person should do it in one breath, but if he cannot, he can do so in multiple breaths.
