Shavuot Update

Dearest Community,
For the past few years Minyan Dafna has had the privilege of leading early morning egalitarian services at the community Tikkun Leyl Shavuot. At this juncture, Minyan Dafna is taking some time to reflect on where we are and explore different steps we can take to strengthen our institution and more effectively sustain our ever-changing community. In alignment with this endeavor, we will not be leading an egalitarian Shacharit service on Shavuot this year.
However, we will be hosting Chilling + Cheesecake Challenge on Monday, June 10 at 4:30pm in Strawberry Creek Park.
More details are below—we hope you will join us!
Looking forward to celebrating as a community,
-The Minyan Dafna Team

P.S. We would love to hear your thoughts about the Minyan Dafna community during this period of reflection. If you are interested in deepening your involvement in Minyan Dafna or have any questions or hopes to share, please email or reach out to Talya Marcus, Lisa Blumenband, Eden Gerson, Dorit Resnikoff, or Tali Singer.
