Survey Results, More Input Requested

 

Last week we posed the question of whether to keep the daily Mincha minyan going through the short winter days. We have received a lot of positive feedback to that. We need a few more commitments in order to make a go of it, so if you can possibly attend Monday through Thursday when Mincha is as early as 4:10 p.m., even some of the time, it would be very helpful to know that. We also need to decide whether to keep the 7:45 Maariv only Minyan as well for those who can’t make the early minyan.

Please hit “Reply” right now and tell us if you can participate in the early Mincha Maariv, or if you are interested in starting up the Maariv-only Minyan at 7:45 p.m. Your input is important as we make these decisions.
