The Women's Minyan was faithful to her past work, yet it was difficult to build the empathy that one normally does with Ms. Ragen's protagonists. A play, however, doesn't build with the same time materials as fiction, and in that respect, the pace was perfect. I appreciated the effort to expose some of the extremes that exist in ultra-Orthodoxy/5(72). Mount Sinai's Minyan Prayer Book contains prayers and readings for minyan gatherings during the 7 days of Shiva after a Jewish funeral. In fact, the entire community has gossiped Naomi Ragen is an acclaimed novelist, who wrote and produced this play set in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish family and community. Women’s Minyan is about Chana, a married mother of twelve, who leaves her home and family. Two years after she leaves, the play opens as Chana comes back to see her children/5. Almost a Minyan is written in rhyme and denotes the bonds of family and faith in a reverent and loving way. Author Lori S. Kline has crafted a book filled with the warmth of time-honored traditions and unfailing devotion. This book, with wonderful illustrations by Susan Simon, is a cultural gem that will connect with readers of all ages/5.

Welcome to One in a Minyan's Home Site! After the death of his father, the author sets out on a quest to learn all he can about Judaism, customs, observances, and holidays to honor his father in a proper Jewish manner while at the same time attempting to overcome the challenges, conflicts, and struggles of his everyday life. The requirement for a minyan for Kaddish is first mentioned in Masekhet Sofrim , not in the Babylonian Talmud or the Talmud of the Land of Israel. The participants counted for the remote minyan must be able to see and hear each other through virtual means and be able to respond “amen” and other liturgical replies to the prayer leader. Our Spring Issue. Mark Anderson’s cover for Spring illustrates a superhero (with Jewish origins) and David Ben-Gurion. The issue includes Anita Shapira’s review of Tom Segev’s new biography of the great Israeli statesman and Michael Weingrad on a Stan Lee (of Marvel Comics fame) bio. Minyan, (Hebrew: “number”,) in Judaism, the minimum number of males (10) required to constitute a representative “community of Israel” for liturgical purposes. A Jewish boy of 13 may form part of the quorum after his Bar Mitzvah (religious adulthood). When a minyan is lacking for synagogue.

What constitutes a congregation? The answer is a minyan, a minimum of 10 adult Jews (an adult Jew is any Jewish male who has passed his 13th birthday). The number 10 was derived from the first verse of Ps which reads: “God stands in the congregation of God.” The word edah (congregation) is also applied to the 10 spies who, in the. This would seem to limit a minyan to people inside one room, even though anyone outside can join the prayers if there is a minyan in the room. Rav Shlomo Ben Aderet (Rashba, 13th cen., Spain; Responsa, vol. 1, no. 96) suggests comparing counting for a minyan for prayer to counting for a zimun for bentching.   There is a debate among the Rishonim as to whether this means that a minyan can be made of people in different rooms (Rashi to Pesahim, others), or only that once there is a minyan in one room, someone outside the room can answer (Tosafot, ibid., s.v. vi-khein l’tefilah and others; this is the view of Shulhan Arukh, OC and 20).   Empowered Judaism is a book about the newest wave of independent minyanim, as well as about a larger vision for Judaism and Jewish community. It offers something to many different constituencies: independent minyan organizers seeking to read about best practices from other minyanim, people in other Jewish communities who want to learn what these minyanim are all about .
