Weekday and Sunday Minyan at Temple Aliyah

Regular Minyan

From September through early June, we hold minyan Monday through Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm, as well as on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and Monday mornings at 6:45 am.  These services, largely lay-led, offer the opportunity for daily worship, and also allow mourners and those observingYahrzeit to recite kaddish.   

Minyan Teams

In order to ensure the presence of a minyan, members of the congregation are assigned to teams and asked to attend weekday evening and Sunday minyan several times a year.  

Our Monday morning minyan includes a brief Torah service, with lay volunteers preparing the weekly Torah portion reading, followed by breakfast and schmoozing.

Summer Minyan (early June - August)

During the summer, Shabbat services are held as usual every Saturday morning, beginning at 9:15 in the chapel.   

Our Monday morning minyanim are held as usual, beginning at 6:45 am.

Evening minyanim in the summer are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays only, beginning at 7:30 pm.  Since sunset is late in the day, we are able to daven both the brief Minchah (the last of the day) and Maariv (first of the next day) services on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Anyone needing to say kaddish on Tuesday may do so at Minchah on that day, while those needing to say kaddish on Wednesday may do so a few minutes later at Maariv.  Similarly, Thursday's service will afford those needing to say kaddish on Thursday or Friday an opportunity to do.  

Sunday morning minyanim are not held during the summer.   

Those requiring a minyan on a Sunday should contact the synagogue office for a list of neighboring congregations offering services

In addition, a maariv service as well as a reading of Eicha (Lamentations) is held on Tisha B'Av
