CHABAD OF Upper Montgomery County used a 300-year-old Spanish Megillah for reading the story of Esther on Purim. It was the first time that the Megillah was used in more than a century, according to Rabbi Sholom Raichik.

He said the scroll was discovered in a Catholic church in Spain by the late Jack Hurwitz of Bethesda, who purchased it and brought it back to the United States. Hurwitz gave it to his son, Donald Hurwitz, who loaned it to Chabad to be used on Purim.
