A Woman's Obligation to Hear Parshat Zachor

A Woman's Obligation to Hear Parshat Zachor
Day: Tuesday
Date: March 15, 2016
Parshat: Vayikra, Zachor
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 685


There are some poskim who maintain that women are required to hear Parshat Zachor and some poskim who maintain that women are not required to hear it. If she needs to, a woman can rely on the Poskim who maintain that women are not required to hear Parshat Zachor. However, a women who goes to the synagogue to hear Parshat Zachor will be blessed. Any person who was not able to go to shul for Parshat Zachor should have in mind to fulfill his obligation to remember amalek when Parshat Ki Tetzeh is read. He should also tell the hazan in that case to have in mind that he is fulfilling his Torah obligation to remember amalek.
