FAQ's about Adath Jeshurun Minyan Services:
Adath Jeshurun is thrilled to provide twice-daily minyan services for our members and the community, as we have been doing for over a century.  Below are some of the frequently asked questions about AJ’s minyan.
1) Who counts in the AJ minyan as part of the quorum? 
    All Jewish people ages 13 and older.
2) Do we read Torah at minyan? 
    We read Torah on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings.  We also read Torah on    
    Rosh Chodesh, celebrating the new Jewish month.
3) Is it required to wear tefillin in order to attend AJ morning minyan? 
    No, it is completely optional.  We are happy to teach you how if you’d like to learn.  We    
    have extra pairs of tefillin available for participants to use.
4) When is Mourner’s Kaddish recited at minyan?  
    There are two opportunities to recite the Mourner’s Kaddish at morning minyan, once  
    near the beginning of the service, and once at the end.  In the afternoon, Mourner’s    
    Kaddish is recited at the end of Mincha, and at the end of Ma’ariv
5) Why should I consider attending minyan services? 
    The daily minyan is the core around which the rest of the synagogue’s religious    
    activities are built.  Participation in the minyan makes everyone an active supporter   
    of the synagogue community.  All of us will eventually need a minyan.  Being an active   
    minyan participant helps assure that a minyan will be there when we all need   
    it.  Among other reasons, minyan attendees often cite the following intangible perks   
    that they receive by attending minyan:
  • Minyan starts or ends your day on a positive note. 
  • Minyan is spiritual and connects you with God. 
  • Minyan provides social interactions with others.
  • Minyan provides tradition for those whose parents or grandparents were participants.
  • Minyan provides camaraderie.
  • Minyan provides the supportive nature of a group of people who care about you. 
We look forward to seeing you at AJ Minyan Services!
