Minyannaires (Daily Minyan)

Daily prayer has been central to the mission of CSI for 110 years. Our congregants (and sometimes guests) want to be able to pray together, whether to maintain their daily prayer routine, to observe yahrzeits and mourning periods by saying kaddish in a minyan, or to enjoy the social aspects of community.

When/Where we meet:

Of course, there are Of course, there are daily services every morning and evening at Shearith Israel; please visit for times as they vary by the season. Breakfast is served following Shacharit on Monday and Thursday mornings. Daily minyan takes place in Mazier Chapel (enter from the parking lot).

what we do:

You can be instrumental:

  • Just show up!
  • Observe yahrzeits for your deceased loved ones. If you don't know the dates, the office can help you.
  • When a loved one passes away, observe the mourning periods of shiva, sheloshim, and, for parents, the full 11 months of saying kaddish.
  • Adopt a day: Choose a day of the week, either morning or evening, when you are likely not to have many scheduling conflicts. Then commit to attend that meeting of the minyan, schedule permitting every week on that day/service.
  • Be the 10th: If you live within a few miles of CSI, put yourself on the call list for the day(s) and time(s) you could be available to complete the minyan.
