DaMinyan was founded in 2007 and began as a small Minyan with just 15 members. Since its inception, it has experienced tremendous growth, and now has over 200 congregants, making it one of the fastest growing Shules in Australia.

DaMinyan is a unique Shule that was established to fill a void felt by our youth. Specifically, DaMinyan was created to cater to young Jewish adults from all backgrounds and walks of life. It operates in a warm, accepting and inspirational environment, and aims to ensure that all of its members are imbued with a strong sense of belonging, Jewish pride and community. Combining a serious commitment to Judaism, with a social and friendly atmosphere, DaMinyan is a Shule that has made a real and lasting impact on a significant and diverse range of people.

Yom Kippur Service & Breaking of the Fast

Yom Kippur is the holiest day in the Jewish Calendar. Customarily, people spend quite a significant amount of time in Shule on this day, spending the day in reflection mode.

What better way to spend the holiest day of the year around friends and like minded young adults and young families.

Join Daminyan over this Yom Kippur and experience real meaning and inspiration.
