About Us

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. Participants 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 in Great Barrington and other  social welfare organizations that serve the local 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, or anything in between, we invite you to join us.
