Each Thursday morning at 8:00 AM, a sacred space is formed as the Thursday Morning Minyan begins on Zoom. Led by Beth Am congregant Louise Stirpe-Gill and “hosted” by Joan M. Karlin, each week participants pray the weekday service and take turns teaching the parashah for that week.

The weekly minyan meeting started about 15 years ago when a congregant’s father passed away. After one week of daily minyanim, the group transitioned to once a week. The inspiration came from the fact that market days in the ancient Middle East were Mondays, Thursdays and Shabbat, so those became the traditional days to read Torah. It was decided that the newly formed Minyan would meet on Thursday mornings in the Beth Am Chapel.

Thanks to Beth Am clergy, Beth Am members join the minyan when they have lost a loved one or are honoring a yahrzeit. When the pandemic hit last spring, the Thursday minyan quickly moved to Zoom and more people began participating.

Over the course of the pandemic year, Louise has added evocative poetry to the service. Participants have been very creative, sharing their interpretations of Torah. The empathy and support that we give to one another warms our sacred virtual space.

Please join the Beth Am Thursday Morning Minyan, just a Zoom away. Bring your coffee and an open heart that will be touched by a caring community.
