During summer 2021, The Berkshire Minyan is holding Shabbat morning services at Saint James Place, 352 Main Street, Great Barrington, MA. Prior registration is not necessary. We welcome only those who are fully vaccinated and masks are required.


The Berkshire Minyan is an unaffiliated, participant-led, egalitarian group that regularly meets for traditional services and other events. Our friendly and informal environment  welcomes people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of familiarity with Jewish texts and ritual. Our drashot and discussions are provocative and our davening is musical.

The Berkshire Minyan has typically met in the library of Hevreh of Southern Berkshire, 270 State Road (Rt. 23), Great Barrington, MA 01230. However, for summer 2021, Shabbat services are being held at Saint James Place, 352 Main Street in Great Barrington, MA.

The Berkshire Minyan holds weekly Shabbat morning services. We also conduct services for the High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) and other Haggim (Sukkot, Pesach and Shavuot). Additionally, we gather for other observances during the year (Chanukah, Purim and Tisha B'Av) and for communal study and for other events.
