Temple Beth Am's Library Minyan, which meets in the Dorff-Nelson Chapel on Shabbat mornings, is a participatory, lay-led, child-friendly community that blends traditional observance with a modern and egalitarian approach to Jewish living.
The Minyan is led by coordinators and committees that organize participation in three areas: (1) aspects of services, such as serving as gabbai, reading Torah and Haftarah, and leading the congregation in prayer; (2) teaching, such as divrei Torah or classes; and (3) social functions, such as kiddushes and potlucks.
The Minyan strives to create a sense of community through members joining together to share in each others’ celebrations and support one another through sorrows. The Minyan’s motto “Come, Serve, and Belong” (formerly “Pay, Come, and Serve”) encapsulates the foundations of Minyan life—attending the Minyan regularly, taking an active role in Minyan activities, and paying membership dues to Temple Beth Am. Decisions on Library Minyan practice are made through a democratic process, within the guidelines of Jewish law and Temple Beth Am policy.
The Minyan, as part of Temple Beth Am, enjoys spiritual guidance from Rabbis Kligfeld and Leider, who are actively involved in this highly respected model for synagogues around the country. Services begin at 9:45 a.m, or at 9:30 a.m. on days when Hallel is recited.
