Sample Text: Megillah 24a

Mishnah

Megillah 4:5-6

The one who concludes with the reading from the Prophets may also lead the responsive reading of the "Shema."
He also passes before the ark [to lead the congregational prayers],
and he lifts his hands [to recite the Priestly Benediction].

And if he was a minor, then his father or his teacher passes in his stead.

A minor may read from the Torah and recite the Aramaic translation.

However he may not lead the responsive reading of the Shema, and he may not pass before the ark, and he may not lift his hands.
