FAQ & General Info
Depends on how many tourists are on the island. During the month of January, we should for sure have a minyan. If you are visiting with a large group (or even a small one), we will do our best to make the minyan happen!
Shabbat morning services:
9:30 - 11:00 AM followed by a delicious buffet kiddush with a hot cholent.
For questions about the Minyan, find out the times for weekday Mincha/Marriv or if you need to say Kaddish, please contact the Rabbi.
