Minyan Rimonim

Minyan Rimonim is a friendly, egalitarian Conservative minyan that meets on the first and third Shabbat of each month. We encourage our members to help with every aspect of the minyan, including leading the service, leyning (reading Torah) and haftarah, giving divrei Torah (thoughts on the week’s Torah portion), bringing refreshments for kiddush, greeting visitors at the door, and organizing social events.

We meet on the first and third Saturday of each month, on the sixth floor of Congregation Ansche Chesed, at 10:00 am.

Congregation Ansche Chesed
251 West 100th Street
(between Broadway and West End Avenue),
New York NY 10025

When a holiday falls on a Minyan Rimonim Shabbat, we honor the occasion by chanting the traditional reading, such as Ecclesiastes on Sukkot, the Song of Songs on Pesach, and Megillat Ruth on Shavuot. Our joint Purim service with the West Side Minyan is a popular annual event.

The minyan follows the traditional liturgy, uses the Siddur Sim Shalom prayer book and reads the Torah on the annual cycle, completing the entire Torah each year. Each Torah reading is followed by a haftarah (selection from the Prophets).

Minyan Rimonim has frequent social events. In the fall we have our annual Erev Shemini Atzeret dinner and Friday evening service in Riverside Park. In the winter, we celebrate Jews’ Night Out (a k a Christmas Eve), meeting for dinner followed by karaoke, a movie, bowling or pool. In the summer, we attend Jewish Heritage Night at Citifield to watch the Mets and at KeySpan Park in Coney Island to cheer the Brooklyn Cyclones. Throughout the year, we get together for Jewish-themed movie nights, walks in Central Park, and Shabbat-afternoon visits to the Jewish Museum (free on Shabbat).

We pride ourselves on our friendly, egalitarian spirit; our completely lay-led service; our spirited davvening; our encouragement of members who wish to develop their davvening and leyning skills; and on our delicious kiddushes, Shabbat potluck lunches, and summer picnics! Everyone is welcome, from babies to centenarians.
