"Ansche Chesed was at the vanguard of the lay-led prayer group movement that sparked an explosion of independent minyans in West Side synagogues." - The Jewish Week, May 27, 2005
One of the hallmarks of Ansche Chesed is the wide variety of portals to prayer in our community. With four adult and three children's Shabbat minyanim, we strive toward holiness and community through prayer, study, and social action in a participatory environment.
One of the questions we hear most often is: So, what is the difference between all these minyanim? Aren't all of them egalitarian and pluralistic? Yes, but that is just the beginning. We invite you to explore our minyanim, either through the pages below or in person any Shabbat morning. Services in the Sanctuary begin at 9:45 am; the other minyanim meet at 10:00 am.
