Daily Minyan

Sign up for Morning Minyan
The traditional morning Shaharit service is held every weekday at 7:15am (exceptions to the starting time are discussed below) and lasts approximately 40 minutes, with the Torah being read on Mondays and Thursdays (making services on those days 15 minutes longer). If you've never davened the morning service before or have never put on tefillin, don't worry - there are always "Minyanaires" eager to help out. We're especially pleased to be able to provide a setting where mourners who might otherwise not have a place to go - whether members of Or Zarua or not - can attend morning services to say Kaddish for their loved ones.

Anyone from the community seeking a place to daven is welcome at Or Zarua's morning minyan!

The Or Zarua morning minyan is characterized by somewhat slow and very serious prayer. We have regular daveners who have come to us as a result of being frustrated by the lightening speed at which shaharit is davened at most morning minyanim. Further, each O"Z service ends with a short d'var Torah, giving us all the opportunity to learn together before dispersing to our respective destinations.

If you'd like to come it's always a good idea to check the monthly calendar or to call the office the day before just to verify the starting time, as there are days when, because of additional content (such as Musaf during Rosh Hodesh), the service starts at 7:00 am instead of 7:15 am. After davening there's a small breakfast of juice, coffee, bagels, and pastries in the first floor Social Hall.

Shaharit is also held at 8:45 am on Sundays and on some secular holidays (Thanksgiving, New Year's Day, etc.), with an extra special breakfast - and often special activities - following! These activities are sometimes held in the synagogue - such as our annual Blood Drive or Dorot holiday package deliveries to the elderly - and are sometimes trips, like museum tours or our skiing day trip. Check the events listing for details.

If you'd like to sign up for regular minyan attendance or even for just a few dates, please call Sheldon Adler at 212-735-2136, or send an email to sadler@skadden.com, so that your name can be added to the minyan schedule.
