While our membership to the Minyan is only at the Associate level (inferring that the Minyan is not our primary synagogue), our experience with the synagogue has been invariably positive and refreshing. Their leadership found within the local community the previously unmet need to conduct a Sabbath morning service at a time much earlier than customary due to various parenting responsibilities and personal preference. This early religious service was made available to the whole Jewish community without regard to level of membership, if any, in the Minyan, and has been a resounding success. Further, the availability of Rabbi Alter as rabbi and friend, despite his grueling working schedule as a "head of school," continues to exceed any imagination of any expectation. He remains part of our family. Overall, the warmth and welcoming manner of DAT Minyan is a "best practice" for other religious entities in our midst.
DAT Minyan is a vibrant and dynamic shul that serves as my spiritual home. It supports my personal growth and is helping build Jewish community.
