# 3047 Hold the Phone!

Q. Someone who has to read the Megila for his wife or others in need, such as the elderly or ill that can’t come to shul. If he is not well versed in the reading of the Megila and therefore is likely to make mistakes that may be essential to compliance, as when they change the meaning of the words, could he ask a friend who knows how to read well, to read it for him slowly on his phone, while he listens through an earphone and then repeats it loudly reading it from a kosher Megila?
A. Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that it is permitted, but should be done slowly, so he can hear first and then repeat and read from the Megila aloud.
The Rov suggested that this method should be used also if needed, on the prior question of a woman reading for others, since it likely, that due to the lack of prior reading experience mistakes will be done.
Rabbi A. Bartfeld as advised by Horav Shlomo Miller and Horav Aharon Miller Shlit’a
