Minyan Dafna is an independent traditional egalitarian minyan in Berkeley, California. We come together for one Kabbalat Shabbat and one Shabbat Morning davening per month. Through some experimention with different models of davening and learning, we are creating a vibrant, energetic, and inclusive community committed to halakha.
If you’d like to contribute with your opinion, time, or in any other way, please let us know. We are excited about your involvement and about growing this prayer community together!
In an effort to accommodate all members of our community, we ask that all food for community events be prepared in a kosher kitchen, and that ingredients for the meal (including cheese) be marked with a recognized kosher symbol (more than just "K"). If you’d like to bring something to a potluck event but don’t have a kosher kitchen, you can always bring a packaged or raw kosher item, such as challah, wine, pre-made dessert, and fresh fruit. If you’re interested in hosting a Minyan Dafna event, but you’re not sure if your home kitchen meets these standards, please contact us and we will be happy to help!
Thanks to everyone who joined us for a wonderful Shabbaton in May!
We are very appreciative of the support from Mechon Hadar, Moishe House Without Walls, Berkeley Hillel, and Congregation Netivot Shalom who helped turn the weekend into a reality.
