Monday Minyan

Date: Monday, December 16, 2019
Time: 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Location: Chapel, Lewis Religious Life Complex

Join us for a casual, intimate Monday morning prayer opportunity
led by fellow congregants and a member of the Temple Beth Am Clergy.

Our traditional teaches that we are obligated to pray three times a day — in the morning, the afternoon and the evening. It is said that this tradition started with our patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Each of them introduced the timing of a different service and Abraham specifically, the morning.

As we read in the Babylonian Talmud Berachot 26b, Abraham instituted the morning prayer, as it is stated "when Abraham came to look out over Sodom the day after he prayed on its behalf: and Abraham rose early in the morning to the place where he has stood before God" (Genesis 19:27) and from the context and the language the verb standing means nothing other than prayer.

This is an intimate and casual gathering. Come as you are.

If you would like to lead a prayer, offer a reading or chant/read Torah, please email [email protected].
