Kaplan Minyan

The Bnai Keshet Kaplan Minyan is named for Reconstructionist Judaism founder Mordecai Kaplan, who sought to create a Jewish framework for discussions of ethics, culture, history and current events. They are designed for people who enjoy a communal Shabbat and want to enrich their understanding of Jewish peoplehood in an alternative, less traditional setting.
The Kaplan Minyan, which meets in the Red Gables historic house across the parking lot from the synagogue’s main building, begins at
10:30am with selected songs and readings.

Upcoming Sessions

All sessions are Saturdays from 10:30am - noon unless otherwise noted
