Project Esther Megillah Reading Directory

Find a megillah reading near you!

Looking for somewhere new to hear the megillah? Whether it's a women's reading group, partnership minyan or mixed reading, JOFA's International Megillah Reading Directory has you covered! The directory lists synagogues, women’s tefillah groups, partnership minyanim, and other groups where women can read Megillat Esther for Purim 2015.

We are in the process of compiling this year's directory (the map will be coming out soon!), so if you know of a reading where women can read megillah, fill out this short form to add it to our directory!  Note: If your reading was included in the JOFA directory in 2013 or 2014, please fill out the form to update the time, location and contact information for 2015.


We will be updating the map as information comes in, but be sure to check directly with each group for more information.
