Daily minyan

Daily and shabbat Services at csi:

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 (afternoon and evening) 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 yahrzeit (anniversary of the date), 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 Shearith Israel minyan part of your routine.

Shearith Israel davening is lay led; we are eager to expand the group of Shearith Israelites who lead services, chant Haftarah, and leyn Torah. To leyn Torah, please contact Andrea Seidel Slomka at shearithisraeltorah@yahoo.com. To lead a Shabbat or Yom Tov service or chant Haftarah, please contact Michael Rich at sidavening@gmail.com

Weekday service leaders are chosen on the spot, so we encourage you to just show up and make known your yahrzeit/mourning or other interest in leading.  We welcome the opportunity to help you learn (or brush up on) these skills.

Reflections on Praying with a Conservative Minyan

“…people seemed to daven as if they meant it. They exuded this sense that something could happen in prayer.” –Rabbi Elie Kaunfer. Empowered Judaism 2010, p.8.

“This is really a good tent of Jacob, you know, a place where I am happy to dwell, an honest-to-goodness house of G-d.”-Arnold Eisen, Chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary. Conservative Judaism: Today and Tomorrow, 2015, p.25.

Prayer is many things to each of us, often different things on different days. These personal reflections by Conservative/Masorti Jews share their experiences of minyan:
