Experiencing Jewish Living at Beth Shalom means a making Minyan for congregants and visitors who wish to attend daily or on the occasion of a Yahrtzeit or Simcha. Rabbi, Hazzan and a dedicated group of talented lay service leaders and Torah readers make this possible.
Beth Shalom holds morning minyan at Village Shalom except for Shabbat and Sundays. Beth Shalom also holds evening services at Village Shalom at 6 p.m. except on Erev Shabbat and Shabbat. All Beth Shalom services not held at Village Shalom take place at our synagogue building at 14200 Lamar.
As with any daily minyan, critical mass is very important. We have a group of dedicated volunteers who recruit people for daily Minyan, literally every day of the week. Beth Shalom uses an online registration program called Minyan Maker to keep track of who will be attending minyan. You can schedule a day at a time, by the week, or even monthly. When you schedule in advance, it makes a big difference to our volunteers who recruit for Minyan.
Over the years the Kansas City Jewish community has become known for its cooperative endeavors. In that spirit, Congregations Beth Shalom and Ohev Sholom join together for morning minyan three days a week at Village Shalom. Our Conservative congregations pray together for Shacharit services on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Together, our congregations help to insure that a minyan of at least 10 adults will be present.
A service to the Jewish community
Meeting in the Appelman Synagogue at Village Shalom (the senior living community) is a service the congregations are providing the residents of Village Shalom, as well as the Jewish community as a whole.
If there is ever a resident who needs to say Kaddish for a loved one, they don’t need to ask for a ride from somebody, they don’t need to impose on somebody … regardless of their mobility, they can get to a daily service to say Kaddish for a loved-one. You don’t have to be a member of either synagogue to attend.
If there is somebody who wants to pray or needs to say Kaddish for loved one and happens to be nearby Village Shalom, it’s a wonderful, central location.The doors are open and it’s not unusual for this minyan to get visitors either from other synagogues, people who are unaﬃliated, or visitors from out of town.
