The Scroll of the Hasmonean Sons (Megillat B'ney Chashmonay)

ByMarc Michaels

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
There isn’t a scroll read on Chanukah - but perhaps there should be? Sofer STa”M Marc Michaels has gathered over twenty handwritten and printed manuscripts from the 13th Century onwards for this traditional text for Chanukah that used to be read in Italian, Yemenite and other synagogues. Examining the variant Hebrew and Aramaic texts, he has created a new tikkun kor’im fully pointed with vowels and trope and a new tikkun sofrim with visual midrashim to add extra depth to the text. A new translation into English with explanatory notes is accompanied by a new commentary on the text - Or LiM’norah in the style of the biblical commentators. Includes two ‘missing’ verses found in the oldest Aramaic manuscripts but expunged from later Hebrew ones. ISBN 978-0-9880539-0-8 (186 pages, Preview pages 1-8,22,43-46,53 and 86)
