It is the night of Purim and for some reason the majority of the Shul has not yet said Kiddush Levana. Should Kiddush Levana be said prior to Megila due to "Tadur" it being more frequent? (source)

  • unless theyre davening outside, this judaism.stackexchange.com/q/29698/759 is highly relevant to an argument from Tadir – Double AA Mar 22 '16 at 14:32
  • Just to note: Tonight Tuesday March 22 is the last night to say Kiddush Levana for this year 5776 - 2016. – Gershon Gold Mar 22 '16 at 14:33
  • @GershonGold Yalqut Yosef holds that one may recite Qiddush HaLevanah through the night of the 15th of the month. – Lee Mar 22 '16 at 14:34
  • @Lee: Bdieved? or L'Chatchila? – Gershon Gold Mar 22 '16 at 14:39
  • maybe Tadir and not Tadur. – kouty Mar 23 '16 at 0:10

Noda B'Yehuda 41 - page 44 - column starting with Vnashiv says that they should make Kiddush Levana first for two reasons. One is tadir. The other is that the Megila can always be done later, however Kiddush Levana there is a risk of it getting cloudy.
