Daily Minyan: 
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 any time during the year.

Friday evening Minyan: Following candle lighting. See times for candle lighting times here:

Shabbat morning Minyan: 10:00 - 11:30 AM followed by a delicious buffet kiddush with a hot cholent.

Yom Tov Minyan - Minyan usually during Sukkot, Pesach and Shavout

It is always important to reach out to confirm your attendance for Minyan

For questions and to join the Minyan Whatsapp group, find out the times for weekday Mincha/Marriv or if you need to say Kaddish, please contact the Rabbi.

Our sages teach us that the building of a Mikvah is even more vital to the spiritual continuity of the Jewish people than the building of a Shul. Indeed, Torah scrolls should be sold to fulfill this mitzvah.
