Newton Centre Minyan

Who We Are


The Newton Centre Minyan, founded in 1973, is an egalitarian, highly participatory, liturgically traditional, denominationally unaffiliated davening community. As of March 2008, the Minyan has approximately 185 member households. We meet for Shabbat morning and holiday services at Hebrew College in Newton Centre.

Members sign up to lead all services, chant Torah and Haftarah, give divrei Torah, and take on special organizational and administrative assignments. All roles are open to both men and women. The Minyan has no paid professionals or staff. All routine tasks such as setting up and cleaning up are shared among all members, and responsibilities for children's services and supervision are shared among members with children. The Minyan does not have a Hebrew school.

Visitors are welcome. Shabbat morning services begin at 9:30 a.m.

Policy for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur:  Due to space constraints High Holiday Services are limited to members only.  We do not sell tickets, and it is not appropriate to "check out" the minyan during the Yamim Nora'im.  We thank you for respecting this policy.

Non-members are welcome to attend the minyan on any other Shabbat or holiday.  Please email the membership address if you have any questions.
