Welcome to the West Side Minyan!
B'ruchim haba-im!

We're a friendly multi-generational egalitarian Minyan on the Upper West Side. We offer free High Holiday services open to all and meet year round on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month on the Sixth floor of Ansche Chesed, 251 West 100th Street, New York NY.

Minyan calendar 2021 / 5781–5782

Unless specified otherwise, services begin at 10 a.m. on the sixth floor at Congregation Ansche Chesed, 251 West 100th Street. For details, see the weekly schedule. Periodically, we have a special "Learning Shabbat" with a shorter service and extended d'var torah/study.

Since some of our members also attend Minyan Rimonim, we list both minyanim here:

We are not meeting in person, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Please join us online on Shabbat mornings. See TeleTefila.com for details. TeleTefila also has virtual social events that you might enjoy.

Every year, the West Side Minyan holds High Holiday services. In 2020, they were online. We don't yet know whether our High Holiday services for 2021 will be in person or online, so please check back here in July.
