Minyan Dafna is an independent traditional egalitarian minyan in Berkeley, California. We come together two to three times a month for Friday night (Kabbalat Shabbat) and Shabbat morning davening. 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!
Connect with tradition and community at Minyan Dafna’s Rosh Hashanah celebrations. Minyan Dafna will be gathering for a traditional-egalitarian Maariv, led by community members, on both nights of Rosh Hashanah. On the first night of Rosh Hashanah, services will be followed by a holiday dinner sponsored by Minyan Dafna. On the second night of Rosh Hashanah, services will be followed by a festive potluck dinner. Everyone is welcome for services and dinner on both nights!
The donations we receive around the High Holidays help support Minyan Dafna throughout the year. If you are able, a donation of any size is greatly appreciated.
We hope you join us as we welcome the new year together!
