"The Minyanaires" is a book about a group of dedicated men and women who are drawn to synagogue to attend the daily minyan. These spiritual members provide the necessary quorum, or minyan of ten, required for mourners to recite the Holy Kaddish prayer. Nineteen members of Baltimore's Beth El Congregation morning minyan as well as five members of the clergy are interviewed about their beliefs in God, the soul, prayer, miracles and much more. The author describes his own spiritual awakening in the minyan after
the loss of his mother. The power of community prayer is emphasized as a healing tool for those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. A wonderfully uplifting read.
