Question: In case one's wife cannot attend the evening reading of the 'megilah' as she is out of town but is likely to return home and attend the morning 'keriah'. should the husband read it to her in the evening by telephone? If yes, who is to say blessings, before and after the reading?
Answer: One may not fulfill the obligation to hear Megilla over the telephone. If she returns home before daybreak, her husband should read it for her then in person.
Question: Dear Rabbi A private question It is impossible for my wife to go to shul this year to hear the megillah. Is it possible for me to read the megilla to her from a sefer so that she can be yotzei. Do I need to do this with full tropp? You speedy answer would be appreciated
Answer: The trop is not important, but it must be read from a kosher Megilla and not from a printed sefer.
