About Us

THE AQUARIAN MINYAN

IT ALL BEGAN HERE . . . AND IT'S STILL HAPPENING HERE.

The Aquarian Minyan was conceived in ecstatic creativity by Reb Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, co-founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement.
 
We are Jews of every level of observance, young and old, single and partnered, LGBT and straight, and every sort of family, differently-abled, spiritual seekers and practitioners of many traditions.
 
Our High Holy Day services continue a thirty-eight–year tradition of being community-led and mixing the traditional with the innovative; the joyous with the solemn; ancient liturgy, meditation and inspired teachings with song and wisdom story; movement with poetry and inner silence.
 
We call this energetic laboratory of spiritual practice davvenin, prayer, and hope that you’ll share this year’s version of it with us!

Our services are community-led, joyous and solemn, traditional and ever-evolving, “Authentic Judaism.” They combine ancient liturgy, song and story, meditation and movement, poetry and prayer, inner silence and inspired teachings. You don’t have to know Hebrew, the prayers or the tunes. “Off-keys” are always welcome! And no one is turned away for lack of funds.
