About Us

The Washington Square Minyan strives to create a meaningful and quality Tefillah experience through our commitment to halachah and egalitarianism, connecting people from diverse Jewish backgrounds to build a warm and vibrant community.  We usually daven with separate seating, without a mechitzah, but approximately once a month we add an all-gender section. (Dates of the two-section and three-section configurations will be added to the calendar.)

The Washington Square Minyan meets for tefillah on most Saturday mornings.  Unless otherwise noted, we meet in the downstairs chapel of Congregation Kehillath Israel at 384 Harvard Street, Brookline, Massachusetts

The minyan also hosts community events and holiday programming. Please view the calendar for information about times and upcoming events.


Washington Square Minyan is a community where people of all abilities are valued equally and participate fully. Our meeting spaces and restrooms are fully accessible to individuals with physical disabilities. We are proud to be Ruderman Synagogue Inclusion Project grantees, and we are grateful for their support. We would love to hear your feedback on what Washington Square Minyan can do to increase inclusivity in our community. Please provide your suggestions and comments to


All food served in public venues (such as our regular meeting space at KI) is certified kosher (“hechshered”). Food served in these public venues is either a) store-bought, or b) prepared by a kosher caterer. For minyan events hosted in community members’ homes, food is made in a kosher kitchen, with certified kosher ingredients, and not cooked on Shabbat.  If you have any questions about this policy, please e-mail
