Help with Daily Minyan

With summer here, we need your help to ensure that there will be a minyan each weekday evening at 8:00pm. All family members post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah are welcome and counted.  Even if it is not your assigned week, consider spending 20 minutes at OT so mourners can recite Kaddish. Itís a wonderful privilege to be able to sustain a daily minyan at Olam Tikvah.
