One dimension of religious practice that Catholics share with our Jewish brothers and sisters is an emphasis on the importance of the community in the daily living of faith. In many strands of Judaism, it’s important to have a minyan gathered to offer daily prayers. A minyan is a quorum of ten men (or in many communities, women and men) gathered to share the prayers of the day. Some Jewish members of the UP community have expressed interest in being part of a minyan to pray together with during the work day, but weren’t sure where to start. If you would like to be part of an inclusive minyan (i.e. no gender barriers), please contact Jericho Knight (email@example.com).
The “Did You Know?” series comes to you as an initiative of the Garaventa Center and Campus Ministry, intended to broaden awareness of spiritual development opportunities on the University campus. If you are curious about anything under that broad umbrella and would like to see an answer published in upbeat, please contact Karen Eifler (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Fr. Jim Gallagher, C.S.C. (email@example.com).
