Megilath Esther [Sefardi].
Late 18th century - Manuscript on vellum, Hebrew, untitled, (37.5 x 238.5 cm). Five skins stitched at side margins to form a continuous roll. Some wear and yellowing. Written in large lettered plain Ktav Sefardi (Vellish) in a clear professional hand. Hamman's sons names written in large letters on separate page, to be red in one breath. The Book of Esther is a book in Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third section of the Jewish Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible) and is also a part of the Christian Old Testament. It tells the story of a Jewish girl named Esther who became queen of Persia and thwarted a plan by Hamman to commit a genocide against her people. Also called The Megillah, the book is the basis and an integral part of the Jewish celebration of Purim. Its full text is read aloud twice during the celebration, in the evening and again the following morning. Besides Song of Songs, it is the only book in the Bible that does not explicitly mention God.
