Daily Minyan (Prayer Service)
“Minyan” has two meanings: a daily prayer service, and the quorum required for the recitation of certain prayers. At Beth Sholom, the “minyan” quorum is ten or more adult (over the age of Bar/Bat Mitzvah) male and/or female Jews for the purpose of communal prayer. Our Minyanaires have made a commitment to regularly attend minyan services to ensure that kaddish can be recited for mourners or those observing yahrzeits.
Beginning this November, we have ended our after hours open door policy to the building. When coming for evening minyan, meetings, adult ed classes and other activities, you will need a key fob to gain entry. The leader of each meeting or activity will also post a cellphone number on the Carchman Glassway entry to the school building so that visitors without key fobs may gain entry to their meetings.
Kaddish (the Mourner’s Prayer) can be said to commemorate a Yahrzeit (anniversary of a death) at any of our minyanim.
We need volunteers to attend evening minyan to ensure that we have a minyan for those who need to say kaddish. Please consider volunteering to be on call or to make a commitment to attend one service a week or a month.
Two Month Trial for Evening Minyan

January at Adath Jeshurun at 7 p.m.;
February at Beth Sholom at 5 p.m. on Sundays and at 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.
