Prayer and Study – March 2020

Daily Minyan

7:30 pm – Daily Ma’ariv And Community Check- In
Each night (Sunday – Thursday) at 7:30 pm, we will have an on-line ma’ariv service and community check-in. During this time, we will recite the names on our yahrzeit list and provide opportunities to honor our loved ones of blessed memory, using a version of Kaddish that can be recited when one cannot be with a minyan. Click here to access and print the Kaddish L’Yachid. We will be using Siddur Sim Shalom (blue cover, either the pocket version or the full size Shabbat, Festivals and Weekdays version). If you don’t have one, you may access the ma’ariv service on line through Sefaria.org.

Ways to Help
