Sunday Morning Learner's Minyanim

Sunday morning Learner’s Minyanim at BTBJ!

BTBJ is eager to make minyan and prayer more accessible to our community.  Therefore, in the New Year of 5779, Rabbi Saul will turn several Sunday morning minyanim into “Learner’s Minyanim” so that everyone can come and learn all about what we do at services on weekday mornings in an inviting, informative non-threatening way.  Jews have been praying for thousands of years offering different modes of expression.  Come find out more about what we do, how we say it and why.  After shul at a breakfast gathering, Rabbi Saul will teach a number of topics throughout the year (see attached list).  So come join us and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to learn more about the world of Jewish prayer and how you can fit right in!
