minyan2A message from Rabbi Alvin Wainhaus of Congregation Or Shalom, 205 Old Grassy Hill Road:

Our weekday Morning Minyan meets on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays.  It’s provides us all with the opportunity of starting the day in a spiritual community, as well as providing the bereaved with the opportunity of saying Kaddish for loved ones.

Last winter our Morning Minyan often lacked a Minyan!  (a “Minyan” is the quorum of 10 people, traditionally necessary for public worship.) Indeed, on a number of mornings when a member needed to say the mourner’s Kaddish he/she was unable.  Moreover, because we had no Minyan, the Torah was not read publicly.

…Which leads me to an appeal:

Please consider doing a Mitzvah, and attending (even occasionally) our Minyan. The service begins at 7:30 a.m. on Mondays & Thursdays, and 9 a.m. on Sundays.  It lasts a ½ hour.  Attire is informal, and breakfast is served, for those who wish to partake.
