"How Did The Aquarian Minyan Get our First Torah?" By Reuven Goldfarb and Ljuba Davis

Ljuba:
I remember the events around the acquisition of the Minyan's Torah well. I brought my godparents Marie and Lew Winston to Barry and Debby's wedding and that was Marie's first exposure to the Minyan. When she found out that the Minyan did not have a Torah of its own she told me, "This is what I've been waiting for, finding the right community who would welcome a Torah as its own and really treasure it!" When she heard that there was a Torah available in SF we went together to look at it----and she fell in love with it!

The Aquarian Minyan

The Aquarian Minyan invites you to our diverse and welcoming East Bay Jewish Renewal community.  Our community was conceived in ecstatic creativity by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, co-founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement.  
 
We are Jews of every level of observance, young and old, single and partnered, LGBT and straight, and every sort of family, differently-abled, spiritual seekers and practitioners of many traditions.
