I apologize to my non-St. Louis readers that this post will not apply to you. However, I wanted to do a post listing all of the Orthodox Megillah readings here in St. Louis. I know as a mom that it can be hard finding a time that will work for me to hear Megillah. I often cannot go with my whole family because my younger kids are not old enough to sit for that long. So I have to alternate going with my husband. Work schedules can also be tricky if you are not able to take off work on Purim day.
So I thought it would be nice to have a place where everyone could find out where all the Megillah readings are for Orthodox families.
Here is my current list as of 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
* Please note that I will make any changes and corrections if I hear of any, so check back!
