Rav Ovadiah: Women can read the Megillah for men (sometimes)
Rav Ovadiah Yosef drops another one of his bombshells and this time it isn’t some ridiculous comment about Arabs or secular Jews, but rather that women can read Megillat Esther for men. Read about it here, here, and here. (hat tip) It will be interesting to see how different communities within orthodoxy react. See some reactions here for some discussion at Hyde Park. One can find here a good discussion of the sources and a summary of poskim here.
