This morning (5/31) I got up extra early to attend a minyon at Beth Shalom.
I’m going to have to go back, because I didn’t realize that a minyon is just a prayer service, and there really wasn’t a lesson of any kind being taught, so I can’t grade the synagogue based on this experience.
I was invited to a Bar Mitzvah this weekend, but I don’t think I can make it. I’m going to have to visit it another week.
But even though I won’t be giving it a grade, I do have some observations.
I got there a little early, just as the person leading the minyon was arriving. He unlocked the door and we went in. He seemed like a pretty nice guy. We didn’t go into the main sanctuary, but into a study room that was kind of like a library with some chairs lined up like pews in front of a table.
