JOFA's Megillat Esther App is designed to help you learn to read Megillat Esther. Use the app to learn the trop, the blessings, and everything else you need to know about chanting Megillah on Purim. You can also use it to follow along during the reading on Purim.
Please note that we have chosen to use the text established by the late Rabbi Mordechai Breuer because it most faithfully represents the text as established by the Masoretes in Tiberias, who fixed the text of our Tanach.
The app includes:
- The entire text of Megillat Esther with translation
- On Demand Audio: With a simple click or touch of any verse, the corresponding Hebrew with proper trop is chanted by a woman, while the corresponding text is highlighted
-Tikkun View: With a simple click or touch, you can choose whether you want to see the Hebrew as vowelized text or as it appears in the Megillah with crowns and without vowels
- Resources for readers, gabbaiot, and those who wish to organize readings in their own communities
1. Bug fixes
2. New feature giving the user the ability to speed up or slow down audio.
Ratings and Reviews
Very nice app
Nice app. Good structure and very useful in learning the taamim and the megilla. While I appreciate that the person who recorded it is in the alto-range, I would have liked to hear a more pleasant recording. Nothing operatic, just more precise pitches and intervals. The musicality felt a little sloppy. Other than that, Yashar Koach to JOFA and all involved.
I’ve been reading Megilat Ester for close to 20 years, and this is the best tool to prepare for my reading. The pronunciation is precise and the tikkun mode is really useful whenever I have a moment to review. Highly recommended!
Just what I needed
Great app for learning Megillat Esther. The audio is clear and at at a good pace for learners, and the option to display the translation is very helpful.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
