Our Vital Morning Minyan – We Need Your Help.

I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the importance of our daily morning minyan and invite you all to join us in this sacred endeavor.  Our morning minyan, our communal prayer service which is held each Sunday at 9:00 AM and Mondays and Thursdays at 7:30 AM, is not only a time for us to come together in prayer but also an opportunity to strengthen our bond as a community.


In this week's Torah portion, Parshat Emor, we learn about the responsibilities of the kohanim (priests) and the importance of upholding the sanctity of the Temple. One particular lesson from this portion resonates deeply with our call for volunteers to participate in the morning minyan.


The Torah teaches us that the kohanim were entrusted with the task of maintaining the eternal flame in the sanctuary. It was their duty to ensure that the flame never extinguished, symbolizing the perpetual presence of God's divine light among the people. Similarly, our morning minyan serves as a spiritual flame that keeps the light of our community burning bright.


By joining the morning minyan, we not only fulfill the mitzvah of communal prayer, but we also play a vital role in sustaining our synagogue's spiritual energy and unity. Each person who attends brings his/her unique presence, contributing to the vibrant tapestry of our community. Together, we create an atmosphere of holiness and connection that is truly awe-inspiring.


However, we cannot achieve this without your help. We have a dedicated core of people who help maintain the minyan, but we need several more volunteers.  The summer months are challenging.

Whether you are a regular attendee or have never joined before, we welcome you with open arms. Your presence and active participation will make a significant impact, not only on our community but on your spiritual journey as well.


Joining the morning minyan is not only an act of devotion to God but also an act of devotion to our community. It is an opportunity to connect with fellow congregants, offer support during times of joy and sorrow, and deepen our understanding of Jewish prayer and tradition.


Your reward for helping out, besides the mitzvah points, is a light breakfast to help get your day started. 


With blessings and gratitude,


Rabbi Bradley Tecktiel
