Congregation Bais Tefilah
The Bais Tefilah Teen Minyan is a source of great pride for the entire shul. With participants ranging from 10 year-olds eagerly awaiting their Bar Mitzvah to young adults currently attending college, the Minyan is unique in its ability to serve a variety of purposes. The older attendees are put in a position of leadership and responsibility while the youngsters learn the proper way to daven in a warm, relaxed setting. All participants are encouraged to contribute their abilities as chazzanim, gabbaim, or ba’alei kriah and are given the opportunity to display their acquired abilities in the shul’s main minyan during periodical “Youth Shabboses” throughout the year. In addition, the weekly d’var torah is designed to be an interactive experience in which everyone is encouraged to contribute their thoughts and ideas. We hope that, with Hashem’s help, the Teen Minyan will continue to flourish in the years to come.
