Megillah Reading Schedule

Purim 2018 - 5778



Experience Purim by participating in a traditional Megilah reading*. At Chabad, our goal is to ensure that everyone in Greater New Orleans has the opportunity to participate and fulfill this Mitzvah. On Purim, Wednesday night, February 28, and Thursday, March 1, we have dedicated volunteers ready to visit nursing homes, hospitals and those who are homebound and can’t make it out.

If you are unable to make any of the readings or know of someone who is unable to make it, please contact Rabbi Mendel Ceitlin: 347-351-6476 or

*It is a Mitzvah to hear the Megillah read twice over Purim- once on March 11 after nightfall, and once on March 12 during the day.
