A weekly Torah class led its participants to decide, at the height of a farbrengen, to establish a new daily minyan.
“As an outcome of a Chof Cheshvan Farbrengen a Hachloto was made to start a new Minyan for Maariv in the lobby of our building,” a participant and resident of 888 Montgomery Street in Crown Heights told COLlive.
More than half of the residents in the large apartment building are Jewish and the organizers identify some 30-40 potential minyan goers. “There are some people on the block who can join too. So we can expect a big minyan.”
While other minyan initiatives in the neighborhood have turned into established shuls over time, “we are just a Maariv minyan. We’ll see how it works,” he says.
Tonight will be the inaugural Minyan at 9PM at 888 Montgomery St. Any questions please contact [email protected]
