We are a growing community at the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale in New Haven, CT, consisting of Yale University students and others from the New Haven area. In our services, we strive to create an uplifting and enthusiastic tefilla, while maximizing the active participation of our community members.
Consistent with our commitment to halacha, we have sought out opportunities afforded by traditional Jewish sources for increasing the inclusion of women in our tefillot. In our Shabbat morning services, both women and men have aliyot and read Torah and Haftarah. Women generally lead P’sukei D’zimra and the Torah service, while men lead Shacharit and Mussaf. We have a mechitza separating women and men during tefilla. For our schedule and for more information about us please visit our website www.minyanurim.org.
We hope you’ll find Minyan Urim to be an open and friendly environment. Come visit us and see what we’re all about!
