Daily Minyan

Daily Minyan- A Life Changing Mitzvah

One of the most inspiring things about our congregation is the blessing of our daily minyan. In addition to providing a few moments of quiet prayer and reflection, our minyanim provide a space for members of CTE to connect to one another and to God, and give those who have suffered a loss the opportunity to say the Mourners Kaddish.

Minyan expresses the value of community. At no time is the importance of community more critical than when one of its members has suffered the loss of a loved one. Our tradition is clear in its belief that a person in mourning must not be alone. The presence and power of prayer and community after a death can change the life of both those who give and those who receive comfort.

But gathering together as a minyan is not just for those who are in mourning. There are many other reasons to come to minyan.  It is not often that we manage to carve out time in our busy schedules to join together with members of our community and make space to discover God’s presence in our lives. We are usually so busy that it seems hard enough to keep in touch with close family and friends. Making time to figure out where God fits into the picture often becomes a lower priority. Fortunately, minyan provides us with that gift and opportunity each and every day.

We invite you to join us as we strive to build a kehillah kedosha, a sacred community of prayer together.  Join us in supporting our fellow members in need, and allow yourself the gift of taking a few moments for quiet prayer and reflection in your own life.

At Congregation Torat El, a daily Minyan is held every weekday morning.  Monday – Friday at 8:00 am, and Sunday at 8:30 am.  In the evening, Minyan is held Monday – Thursday at 7:00 pm.  All members of the community are welcome to attend.
