Praying with our Minyan
Adat Shalom Synagogue hosts prayer minyanim both in the morning and afternoon every day, meeting in the Shiffman chapel (except on Shabbat and holiday mornings).
Our minyan is very welcoming, and many who join us at first because they are saying kaddish continue their attendance after completing this obligation.
We have many participants who can lead services, and we give first priority to receiving an aliyah and to serve as shaliach tzibbur to those observing a yahrtzeit. We do require that any male called to the Torah for an aliyah or to lead the shacharit service wear tefillin.
Our morning service lasts approximately 40 – 60 minutes, depending on whether we read Torah, recite Hallel, or include the Musaf service. Our afternoon/evening service lasts approximately 25 minutes.
Service times are:
M – F 7:30 a.m.
Sundays, New Year’s,Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, & Thanksgiving 8:30 a.m.
S – F while on Eastern Standard Time 5:00 p.m.
S – F while on Daylight Savings Time 6:00 p.m.
For a few weeks before Daylight Savings Time begins, we move services to 5:30 p.m. Check the synagogue calendar or with the office for precise times from mid-February through mid-March.
Starting time at the end of Shabbat or Yom Tov coincides with the time for reciting Havdalah at the end of the day.
Please join us at our daily minyan when you can. Try to pick at least one service each week and make it your own contribution to the minyan, and perform the mitzvah of enabling others to say kaddish, which can only be said in the presence of a minyan.
