NYT article on Jewish worship groups

The more I read about what younger Jews are doing to revitalize worship and community, the more I want something similar for Christians. I often see themes of lay-centered, multi-participant and tradition transcending worship in groups (which have adopted the older and more general name minyanim; somehow the usual translation “prayer quora” doesn’t cut it) that overcome pew-seated passivity.

Be sure to check out the November 28 article in the New York Times. (“Challenging Tradition, Young Jews Worship on Their Terms” by Neela Banerjee)

Of local interest, note the DC Minyan, cited in the article.
