MJN Article: Madison Minyan Celebrates Chai Minyan

posted Apr 3, 2013, 9:04 PM by Gideon Klionsky
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.

Each 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.
