Minyan is an intimate, lay lead worship service on Saturday mornings. It begins at 9:00 am and concludes at 9:45 am; followed by a coffee-and-bagel break and Torah study.
Some of the Torah Study sessions are lay-led and some are clergy-led. All are participatory, warm and relaxed, and add another facet to worship at Temple Beth Elohim.
