Weekday Minyanim

  • We are no longer requiring preregistration for weekday minyanim. (Preregistration is still required for Shabbat minyanim.)
  • Weekday morning minyanim continue to begin with Selichot and then continue Rabbe Yishmael (please say Berachot beforehand) and start at the following times: 
  • Sun: 8AM and 9AM
  • Mon-Fri: 6AM, 7AM and 8AM
  • Sun-Thur: Mincha/Maariv times: 5:55PM and 7:10PM 
  • If you are comfortable, we'd love to see you back in shul and have your participation in ensuring strong, robust minyanim. We continue to urge everyone to remain vigilant in following social distancing and masking protocols, both inside and outside of shul. Those in high-risk groups should consult with their physician before attending minyan.
