Purim Anagram Quiz

by John Chart
 

Just as the Almighty's guiding hand was "hidden" from view in the text of the fast-moving chain of events in the Purim story, so names and key words - both easy and obscure - in Megillat Esther are hidden in the 50 anagrams below.

 

Guidance notes: 

Names of persons or places et al - denoted by "N"

Words transliterated (Sephardic pronunciation) from the Hebrew are marked "HT"

Words with no markings are ordinary English words

The words are NOT in chronological order - so no easy ride!
