So, are you working on Purim? If so, how do hear megillah reading?
When my wife was a resident, it seemed she was always stuck in the hospital. One year, I recall going into the hospital around 2 AM and we read the megillah quietly in the hallway. Two years ago she had to be at work, and to my surprise when I went out there (about a 50 minute drive) another two Jews came to her office to hear the megillah as long as I was there. Otherwise, they wouldn't have bothered. We also gave them some mishloah manot on the spot; so sometimes something good even comes out of being at work.
One of my most interesting similar situations was when I was in jail in Abu Kabir, outside Tel Aviv. We actually had a really nice Purim celebration there!
I kinda wanna, but think I should not ask why you were in jail...
;D Gotta watch who you hang out with, Rivka!
We were protesting the Camp David Accords, when Carter visited Yerushalayim. So many people were arrested in the streets, they had to bus us to Abu Kabir prison in Tel Aviv. We made a very nice Purim that night in the prison. Rabbi Shlomo Thaler had brought along a small megillah in anticipation, and we had a reading with some of the less dangerous prisoners joining us. Then, we were sent home in the wee morning hours of Shushan Purim. So, we ended up making Purim again when we got back to the yeshiva.
This year, we had five megillah readings in the beit midrash or at home to accommodate the different needs.
