Our Shabbat Minyanim
We currently meet for Shabbatot and on the chagim. Our Shabbat services are very lively, and quite often you will find people dancing on Friday night. At Rimon, women are involved in leadership positions and are free to give divrei Torah both from the bima and after Shabbat services.
Although we do not currently have a formal Rabbi, we do have very talented baalei tefilla and speakers that make our services intellectual, spiritual, lively and warm. Over the past six years they have been primarily led by Yair Shahak, this year’s winner of the national chidon tanach, a cantorial student of Cantor Malovany, and ‘Professor of the Year’ winner at Yeshiva University. Yair is married to Yaelle Frohlish, a Stern graduate and a PhD student in Jewish History at NYU. Yaelle often delivers a ‘dvar Torah’, especially on Friday night. Some of our past Rabbi’s and speakers include: Rabbi Cary Friedman, Rabbi David Stein, Rabbi Yair Hindin, and Rabbi Sam Taylor.
