Morning Minyan

Whether saying Kaddish or fulfilling your minyan obligation, or even just to pray and commune with God, this is a most welcoming community. Women are welcome to don tefillin, and the Siddur Sim Shalem for Weekdays is used. Daily minyan meets in the Bennett Library most days, and in the summer usually gathers outside in the Sukkah for prayers. Often, one of our rabbis imparts a few words of Torah at the end of the service. The Tuesday daily minyan is followed immediately by Gary Porton's Text on Tuesday class.

Morning Minyan is held most weekday mornings (M-F) at 7:00am; Sundays and National Holidays at 8:30am

  • Rosh Chodesh
