Pickle Minyan

Meeting Dates 2020:   January 25: February 22: March 21

What is Pickle Minyan?

Pickle Minyan is a youth-led minyan*...with pickles. Pickle Minyan is for kids in grades 2-6. *a learner's minyan!

Why Pickles?
Pickles are a metaphor (but we'll really be eating them!). Like learning to lead and leyn, pickling takes time, patience and practice. Also, just like kids, pickles come in all sorts of sizes and flavors. And pickles are delicious!

So what do you want from me/my kid?
Well, pickles for one. But also your participation, support and enthusiasm!

But what if I've never led or leyned before? How will I learn?
Start by taking it one step at a time. The first step is to participate and follow along. Sign up to open the aron, gabbai (call the pages), or take an aliyah. We'll provide you with recordings and resources to help you take the next step. And find a mentor! Use your shul time on a pickle-free week to practice with a parent, buddy or group of friends.

What if I'm scared or mess up?
You won't know until you try. Some pickles are sweet and some are sour. But in Pickle Minyan, we're all in the same jar!

Pickle Minyan ends with a delicious pickle kiddush in honor of those who participated. We may even branch out to other pickled foods. But we will never serve herring!
