***Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control related to COVID-19, the Orthodox Minyan at Harvard Hillel will not be able to operate again for the foreseeable future. A group of local Jewish leaders is now organizing outdoor minyanim with strict social distancing guidelines for the broader Cambridge Jewish community. If you'd like more information, please contact us.***
We are home to the only year-round weekday minyan north of the Charles River. During the school year, we have Shacharit and Mincha/Maariv each day. During the summer and other school breaks, we have Shacharit nearly every day, and Mincha/Maariv when there is sufficient interest (see below).
Rosh Chodesh and Fast Days 7:10AM
Harvard University holidays: 8:30AM
About 15 minutes before sunset
SIGN-UP SHEET: Men planning to attend the minyan are asked to sign up on the minyan sign-up sheet. The status of each tefillah is posted there beforehand (by 11pm the previous evening for Shacharit, and by 30 minutes before for Mincha/Maariv).
BUILDING ACCESS: Please note that, for security reasons, the doors of Hillel are locked at all times. If you are unable to access the building, please call or text 617-285-8822.
KADDISH: We are always happy to provide a place both for visitors and locals to say Kaddish for their loved ones, regardless of background. Women are encouraged to say Kaddish with our minyan as well. If you need a minyan to say Kaddish during a school break, or at a different time of day than our minyan normally meets, please reach out to Evan.
