What is the Summerlin Minyan Project?
We are a Jewish Prayer Group that currently meets roughly one Shabbat per month (Shabbat Mevarchim). The location varies from month to month. We are a traditional, egalitarian, participatory welcoming Minyan.
Traditional - While we do not have a set Siddur (Prayer book), we follow the traditional liturgy used by Orthodox and many Conservative synagogues as found in Artscroll or Birnbaum Siddurim.
Egalitarian - Women participate equally with men. Women have aliyot and can lead the Prayer service.
Participatory - Sort of like a co-operative, everyone is expected to help out in some way. You may lein Torah or lead a portion of the service. If this is not your skill set, you can help with the kiddush, set-up/clean-up or help with children's programming. Also, if you want to learn how to lein or lead, we have people who can help you with that too! We don't believe in bystanders.
Welcoming - We are open to people of all Jewish backgrounds. If you are looking for a meaningful, traditional, egalitarian participatory minyan - check us out on Facebook at Summerlin Minyan Project. Have questions? E-mail us at email@example.com
