12th CYCLE DEDICATION:
 
MEGILAH 21 - Dedicated by Alex and Helen Gross of Rechavya, Jerusalem, lovers of Torah and builders of a home molded by dedication to Torah study. May the Zechus of the Torah always provide for and protect their entire family!

SUMMARY

4. The Gemara says that we recite three blessings before reading the Megilah.
 
5. The Gemara says that we recite one blessing after reading the Megilah.

A BIT MORE

1. Rebbi Akiva: It may be eaten the entire night. Rebbi Elazar ben Azaryah: It may be eaten only until Chatzos (Halachic midnight).
 
2. For example, the Mishnah says that on Monday, Thursday, and Shabbos afternoon, there are three Aliyos, no more and no less.
 
3. Some say that even before Raban Gamliel, it was deemed appropriate to learn new things standing and to review them sitting down.
 
4. The three blessings are: Al Mikra Megilah, she'Asah Nisim, and Shehecheyanu.
 
5. The blessing, "Ha'Rav Es Rivenu," concludes with the blessing, "Ha'Nifra Yisrael mi'Kol Tzarehem, ha'Kel ha'Moshi'a."
