The Berkshire Minyan conducts weekly in-person Shabbat morning services.
If you wish to attend, please contact us.
As of April 15, 2023, masks are no longer required at Shabbat services. The decision of whether or not to wear a mask is yours.
For the sake of our community, we ask that you not come to services if --
· you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or other infectious illness
· you have tested positive in the past 10 days
· someone in your household has COVID
If you are bringing guests to shul, please make certain that they, too, are aware of and follow this policy.
The Berkshire Minyan is a self-organized group that provides a liturgically traditional, egalitarian davening experience in South Berkshire County.
Our services are entirely participant-run and members of the community volunteer to lead services, chant Torah and Haftarah, give drashot and handle administrative duties. As such, each service is unique, but the davening is always inclusive, meaningful and spirited, and the drash is unfailingly provocative and intellectually challenging.
We also create opportunities to support and volunteer at local food pantries, Habitat for Humanity, Construct and other social welfare organizations that serve the local Berkshire community.
Our leadership group, the Vaad, is comprised of a rotating group of five volunteers who oversee the operations of the Berkshire Minyan. Additional volunteers coordinate weekly services, events, and other minyan activities.
Whether you're visiting the Berkshires for a weekend, live in the region year-round fulltime, or anything in between, we invite you to join us.
