The one of the four Mitzvot of Purim entails listening to the Megillah, or the story of Purim, in its original Hebrew text twice during the festival. The first reading takes place on the evening of Monday, March 6th, followed by a second reading during the daylight hours of Tuesday, March 7th.

Chabad offers one evening reading at 7:00 PM, along with light refreshments, as well as several daytime reading options. The first reading is incorporated into our morning services, which commence at 6:30 AM, with the Megillah reading starting at around 7:15 AM.

At 9:30 AM, JPS will host another reading, which is open to all. Our final reading is scheduled at the beginning of our International-themed Purim Party, and although we encourage everyone to sign up for the dinner and party using this link, everyone is welcome to attend the Megillah reading at 5:00 PM.

If you or someone you know are unable to attend but would like to hear the Megillah, we have a team of Rabbis and volunteers who will come to your home or office! Contact us at 704-366-3984 or email [email protected]
