Wednesday Evening Minyan Returns After Summer Break

The Wednesday Evening Minyan has been a Shomrei tradition since 2008. It began after my father, Mike Leventer, passed away and I wanted to say Kaddish in the comfort of my home and community. Shomrei came through for me nine years ago and we have sustained the minyan ever since.

How does the service work? We daven the short evening service in Hebrew and English. If you are observing a Yahrtzeit or saying Kaddish during a year of mourning, we support you. We sing a “Mishabayrach” for family and friends who are ill. We gather together for 20 minutes of tranquility and gratitude in an otherwise hectic week.

Making a minyan (a quorum of ten adult men and women) is not always easy. Sometimes we are 1 or 2 people short. On the other hand, sometimes we need more chairs in the living-room and dining-room. We rely on a core group but always welcome newcomers. No need to make a long-term commitment. Come and check us out. Come every month or intermittently. I promise you will feel welcome and the experience will elevate your week.

We meet at 7:30 PM on the first Wednesday of each month at the home of Andy and Merrill Silver. After a summer hiatus, we will resume our monthly schedule on Wednesday, September 6.

We have the siddurim, the kippot, and the chairs. Just bring yourself (and a friend or significant other) and be part of this Shomrei tradition.
