Campus Minyanim
  • With the weather getting cooler and the imminent changing of the clock, we will occasionally make some adjustments to the davening for the outdoor minyanim. We will have the Shabbat and daily outdoor minyanim for as long as they can be maintained. For now, the daily Mincha / Ma'ariv minyan will continue to meet outdoors. On most evenings, beginning next week, there will be Heicha Kedusha for Mincha with Ma'ariv beginning immediately after Mincha. Anyone interested in a zman Mincha minyan on Shabbat afternoon after the clocks change, should email and indicate preference for an indoor or outdoor minyan.
