The Minyan now has an On-Timers Roster, which is called upon early in the week prior to Shabbat services, to commit to being on time (10AM) for Shabbat services. Our last few Shabbats we began services with a full Minyan. This means that we are also able to recite the Mourners Kaddish early in the service, during P'sukei d'Zimra. We are looking for a few more volunteers. Please contact David Rogoff, dvdgrog@aol.com, and let him know if you can commit to helping us start as a congregation of ten.
