Amazing Megillot #3 - The Gross Family Meggilla


This Megilla is like no other. It's an antique piece from the 18th century Germany and it remains in good condition. The coolness of this Megilla: the illustrations are very complex and detailed, also in various layouts, so the writing is not "uniform" and standardized like normal Megillot - it differs from page to page. Sometimes it has a round shape, or a long shape, as dictated by the illustrations around it.

This Megilla belongs to the private collection of the Gross Family, Tel Aviv. You can get a limited-edition facsimile edition for "just" U$ 4,000. You can read more here.
