MINYAN OHALECHA: YOUR TENT MINYAN - SHABBAT MORNINGS @ 9:30AM

Our new alternative Shabbat morning service, Minyan Ohalecha: Your Tent Minyan, will take place in the CSI Parking Lot on Saturday mornings starting at 9:30am, starting in November. The minyan will be a completely lay-led Shabbat morning service, with a familiar feel and some modifications to accommodate the needs of a lay-led service. Masks will be required for all participants. The experience is limited to 12 units and registrations will be accepted on a "first-come first-served" basis.

Please note: In order to hold Minyan Ohalecha each week, we must have a minyan of participants registered by the preceding Monday. If we do not have a minyan registered by this Monday, November 2, we will cancel the November 7 Minyan Ohalecha and begin the following week. Come gather safely, at last, for Shabbat Services with your CSI family!
