CONGREGATION B'NAI JACOB'S DAILY MINYAN IS A COMMUNITY ASSET
Please join fellow CBJ members for our daily minyan. Although we need ten adults to join in the daily minyan, there are times this is difficult. For more than 50 years, CBJ has had a daily minyan often the only one in Chester County. It allows us to come together and say the prayers that our Jewish tradition allows only when we are praying as a community. The minyan is especially important to those who are in mourning and need to say Kaddish.  When we have a minyan, our entire community is made richer and when we do not, we are all poorer. Please make every effort to participate and make certain that our daily minyan remains a communal treasure as it has been for so many years. Daily minyan is at 7 PM.
