Independent Minyan Study

Much has been written about the independent minyan movement (including several articles in the last issue of Zeek). But is it really a movement? Do minyan-goers have a consistent demographic profile? How observant and Jewishly active are minyan participants?

We might have answers to these questions soon, as Synagogue 3000 and Mechon Hadar have teamed up with sociologist Steven M. Cohen to produce a study of these “Spiritual Communities.”

Do you attend an independent minyan? If so, you can fill out the survey here.
