St. Louis Jewish Orthodox Community – Purim Megillah Readings 2015

Purim is only a few days away and we have been very busy getting everything ready. But as we all know, Purim has four important mitzvos. Thankfully, the only prep for hearing megillah is deciding where to go. To make it easier for my St. Louis Orthodox friends, here is my annual list of readings in the community.

I update this post often as new information comes to me and if there are any corrections. Please check back if there is not a time that suits you and your family.
