FAQ'S ABOUT ADATH JESHURUN MINYAN SERVICES:

Adath Jeshurun is thrilled to be able to provide minyan services twice-a-day for our members and the community, as we have been doing for over a century.  Below are some of the frequently-asked questions about minyan at Adath Jeshurun, along with some answers.  If you have other questions not listed here, feel free to contact Rabbi Slosberg or Cantor Lipp.

1) Who counts in the AJ minyan as part of the quorum? 

All Jewish people ages 13 and older.

2) Do we read Torah at minyan? 

We read Torah on Monday and Thursday mornings and on Saturday mornings and afternoons.  We also read Torah on Rosh Chodesh, celebrating the new Jewish month.

3) Is it required to wear tefillin in order to attend AJ morning minyan? 

No, it is completely optional.  We are happy to teach you how if you’d like to learn.  We have extra pairs of tefillin available for people to use.

4) When is mourner’s Kaddish recited at minyan?  

There are two opportunities to recite Kaddish at the morning minyan, once near the beginning of the service, and once at the end.  In the afternoon, Kaddish is recited at the end of mincha and at the end of Ma’ariv.  Kaddish is recited by people in mourning, and by those observing a yahrzeit.

5) Why should I consider attending minyan services? 

The daily minyan is the core around which the rest of the synagogue’s religious activities are built.  Participation in the minyan makes everyone an active supporter of the synagogue community.  Everyone will eventually need a minyan.  Being an active minyan participant helps assure that minyan will be there when we all need it.  Among other reasons, minyan attendees often cite the following intangible perks they receive by attending minyan:

·         It starts or ends your day on a positive note. 

·         It is spiritual and connects you with God. 

·         Having social interaction with others.

·         Tradition…..Perhaps attending minyan was important to your parents or grandparents.

·         Camaraderie.

·         Experiencing the supportive nature of a group of people who care about you. 

6) Who leads the daily minyan? 

Minyan is led by Rabbi Slosberg or Cantor Lipp, or is led by a member of the Congregation.

We look forward to seeing you at AJ Minyan Services!
