Question:

Shalom Harav can a Sephardi fulfill his deorayta chiyv of Parasha Zachor in Ashkenazy shul /Baal koreh please? Ty.
Lechatchillah or bedieved?

Answer:

A Sefardi should hear the reading from a Sefardi and Ashkezani should hear Parshas Zachor with a sefer torah that is according to their minhag, and is read according to their havara (pronunciation). B’dieved though, even if it was heard with a different havara, or a sefer torah with a different type of letters one is yotza.
