Praying is often a deeply personal experience, but when we pray with others it fosters a deeper sense of connection and community and offers the opportunity to pray more deeply. The Jewish requirement of praying with a group of 10 (a minyan) for many fundamental rituals encourages joint spirituality and communal cohesion.
The Melville JC minyan welcomes those saying Kaddish, those with a yahrzeit and anyone desiring a spiritual connection.
Minyan has two meanings: the quorum required for the recitation of certain prayers and the prayer service itself. At Melville Jewish Center our minyan is egalitarian and open not only to members but to the entire Jewish Community through our Zoom® option.
Minyan Services are held:
