Due to the continued Omicron variant, The Berkshire Minyan is taking a pause in holding in-person Shabbat morning services. We expect to resume shortly and will post information then.


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 meets regularly for Shabbat morning services at Saint James Place, 352 Main Street in Great Barrington, MA. Prior registration, full vaccination and masks are required.

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.
