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. The directory includes: 

  • 83 readings (16 co-ed, 67 for women only)

  • Readings in 7 countries: the United States, Canada, England, Ethiopia, Israel, Australia, and South Africa

  • Readings in 15 states: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, and Washington

We are in the process of compiling this year's directory, 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.

Please confirm the time and location directly with the event organizers!


If a spreadsheet is more your style, use this version of the directory. Note: there is additional information on the map entries that is not included in the spreadsheet, including childcare and contact information.
