Minyan is held every morning and evening at Shearith Israel. Weekday Shacharit begins at 7:00 a.m. (6:50 a.m. on days when the Torah is read); Sundays start at 9:00 a.m.; most federal holidays at 8:30 a.m. Weekday Mincha/Ma’ariv times vary between 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. by season, so please consult the calendar for specific times. Enter for minyan from our parking lot off University Drive.
Egalitarian services are led by volunteers in the traditional manner of Ashkenazi congregations, and are accessible to everyone no matter their level of knowledge. If you are in mourning after the death of a loved one, observing a yarzheit, or want to join our kehilla for a few minutes of reflection and community, please join us any morning or evening. If you are eager to lift your spiritual life through daily prayer, make the CSI minyan part of your routine.
Evening shiva minyanim are arranged in homes as required. Please contact Rabbi Kaiman at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
