Welcome to the Newton Centre Minyan!

Founded in 1973, the Newton Centre Minyan is a strong and vibrant community dedicated to prayer, learning, love of Judaism and Israel, tzedakah, friendship, and mutual support. We are multi-generational, LGBTQ-inclusive, and highly participatory. We join together to worship and celebrate Shabbat, holidays, and life-cycle events.

We meet at the top of Newton Centre on the lovely campus of Hebrew College (160 Herrick Road, Newton Centre, MA 02459]. There’s plenty of parking, and Hebrew College is handicap-accessible.

Religious practice

We meet at 9:30 am for services every Shabbat morning and major Jewish holidays. Our services are traditional, egalitarian, lay-led, and self-organized. In addition to our main service, we also have a variety of services that are geared towards families and children.
