Evening Minyan

Eli M. Black Lifelong Learning Center

Help make a minyan! Give yourself the gift of a few minutes of thoughtful reflection in the early evening and help ensure that mourners are able to say kaddish. We especially need your presence now during the summer, when people are away.

We read in Psalm 69, verse 14: Va-ani tefilati l'kha Adonai eit ratzon – as for me, may my prayer come to You, O Lord, at a favorable moment. The Talmudic sages ask, "What is a favorable moment?" They answer, "The moment when a community comes together in prayer." Let us create a favorable moment together..  


During the time of year when it becomes dark after 6:00 pm, we say Minha at 5:45 pm, Sunday–Thursday, followed by Ma'ariv. At this time of year, we also say Minha on Friday at 6:00 pm in the Appleman Chapel.

During the time of year when it becomes dark earlier than 6:00 pm, we do not say a full Minha service. After a psalm and kaddish, we say the Ma'ariv service.
