Madison Minyan volunteer and participant Aleeza A wrote a nice article about the minyan in April's Madison Jewish News. You can find it on page 10
of the original paper or view the text version
without the accompanying photos.
participant has his or her own reasons for attending, from the energy
in the room during services to simply being around other Jews. But no
matter what brings someone to the minyan, it’s clear that this is a
labor of love by the many founders, volunteers, and newcomers who pitch
in every month to ensure its success.
Madison Minyan has had several recent successes and looks forward to
even more. In December, the minyan was awarded a grant to help with
growth and operations for the first six months of 2013 by the Young
Adult Department of The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, and in
March, they enjoyed a near record-setting attendance. In April, the
minyan will welcome Rabbi Kenneth Katz to give the monthly d'var Torah.
In May we’ll gather on the 3rd Friday of the month instead of the
second, as we celebrate yet another marriage of a pair of founders.
