A place for English speaking sofrim (scribes), magihim (examiners), rabbis and vendors of Stam (Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzah scrolls) from around the world to communicate, share ideas, ask questions and offer support and advice.
Interesting. And the ksav too
יש עוד דבר מעניין - באלפי"ן היודי"ן העליונים הפוכותאפשר לראות חלקים נוספים מהמגילה בכתובת הנמצאת בפנים, ושמה רואים שסתם אלפי"ן בשאר המגילה היודי"ן של האלפי"ן ישרות כלפי מעלה, ולא הפוכות
These are new innovations that have been introduced. I suspect that this AYIN RABATI is based on the concept that the hanging of the 10 evil sons of Haman represents a pivotal moment in the ushering of the Ge'ulah. Therefore, we see Daryavesh, (Queen Esther's descendant) giving permission to Ezra to return to Eretz Yisrael and to rebuild the Beis ha'Mikdash. This according to our tradition happened EXACTLY 70 YEARS after the Churban of the Bet ha'Mikdash. The AYIN is made large because it alludes to those 70 years. There are other innovations in this megillah as well. I will post it in a follow-up post with pictures so that you may be better able to view it by visualizing the text.
