Davening, Torah Readers & Shabbat Info

SERVICE TIMES: friday, november 17  - thursday, november 23:


*Please note: Morning minyan on Thursday, November 23rd will begin at 8:30 am in observance of Thanksgiving.

All services, including Daily Minyan and Shabbat, take place at Shearith Israel and are open to all! Daily Minyan and Friday night services continue to be held on Zoom as well at this link. The passcode is required for entry. Non-members who wish to request access to our minyan may email

In this "post-COVID" era, we once again require an in-person minyan for all prayers that need a minyan with the exception of Mourner’s Kaddish. That means if there are 5 people in-person and 5 people on Zoom, the service will omit prayers like the Barchu and Torah reading, but include the Mourner’s Kaddish at the end of the service. We are striving to have 10 people in-person for all of our daily minyanim in addition to our Zoom participants.

Shabbat morning services are livestreamed on our website, YouTube, and Facebook pages.
