Jewry Duty

A Minyan Strengthening Initiative

Jewry Duty is an initiative that encourages our members to support daily minyanim by attending mid-week services at least twice a year A robust minyan ensures that we achieve a quroum of 10 men every day, without fail, and strengthens our entire community - of men and women - by coming together in prayer, especially in support of mourners and those marking a special date.

 

All of our Manhattan-based members who are post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah-aged will be "summoned" to attend.  And our hope, of course, is that everyone will feel encouraged to join us even more frequently. 

 

Please find your assigned Jewry Duty date in the monthly schedules below and mark your calendars. You will also receive your "summons" reminder as we get closer to your date.  Note: any reassigned dates will not be reflected in the schedules below. We look forward to praying with you soon!
