Megilat Esther readings by women for women began some 30 years ago in Jerusalem. In Jerusalem interviewed Rabbanit Malke Bina, founder of Matan (the Sadie Rennert Women’s Institute for Torah Studies), and a pioneer in promoting advanced Torah study for women.

We also caught up with Sandy Cash, a well-known singer and actress for English-speaking audiences, who lives in Beit Shemesh and reads the megila there.
