Our Worship Services

The Tremont Street community is as varied as it is welcoming, encompassing a variety of ritual practices among our members. We often offer multiple minyanim (prayer groups) with different approaches to our shared tradition.

Egalitarian services encourage the full ritual participation of women and men. A quorum is reached when there are ten adult Jews present, regardless of gender. There is no gender-separated seating. Regular Egalitarian services take place Saturday morning at 9:30am, Thursday mornings at 7:00am, and on holidays. We hold Egalitarian Friday night services on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Fridays of the month.Of note is a potluck on the First Friday of the month held jointly with the Partnership Minyan.

Partnership services are a newer style of minyan, and practices vary from minyan to minyan. Partnership services have male and female participation and leadership in a coordinated way at points throughout the service. Some minyanim reach quorum when there are both ten adult Jewish men and ten adult Jewish women, while other partnership minyanim reach quorum with ten men. Men and women sit separately, divided by a mechitza (partition). Partnership services take place on the 2nd and 4th Friday evenings of the month; the service time varies, so please check the calendar or weekly announcements when you are planning to attend! We also have a monthly potluck dinner following services generally on the first Friday of the month, with signup available here. Minyan Tehillah, another local Partnership minyan, holds Saturday morning services at Tremont Street on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. Please contact the leaders of those minyanim (information is below; contact Minyan Tehillah about their services) if you have any questions about their specific practices regarding participation and how they count a minyan.

Orthodox services have male leadership, and a quorum is reached when there are ten adult Jewish men present. Men and women sit separately, divided by a mechitza (partition). Regular Orthodox services take place on Saturday mornings at 7:00am (2nd and 4th Saturdays) or 9:15am (other Saturdays), and Sunday morning at 8:30am, usually followed by Breakfast. There are also Orthodox services for most holidays.
